All undergraduate students in the School of Education complete a 3-hour school library placement in EDUC226 (childhood ed) or EDUC315 (adolescent ed). The Education Librarian, Stacia Maiorani, will work with Rochester-area school librarians to find a placement for each student. Students also have the opportunity to complete this placement in their hometown and/or with another student for transportation. After the 3-hour experience, students will write a reflection to be submitted to the course instructor and the Education Librarian.
This is a great change for future teachers to meet a valuable colleague in a school and see the many ways in which a librarian can help students and teachers!
