Students in the School of Education complete a 3-hour school library placement in EDUC226 (childhood ed), EDUC315 (adolescent ed), or GCED528 (primary ed). The Education Librarian, Stacia Maiorani, will work with Rochester-area school librarians to find a placement for each undergraduate 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 write a reflection to be submitted to the course instructor and the Education Librarian.
This is a great chance 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!
