  • Volume 31 Issue 1 - The beast and the beastmaster
    • Abstract: Gardner, Scot
      I was a closet 'reluctant reader' when I was at school. Back in Year 10, at my crusty public school in Gippsland, that meant I quietly refused to read John Steinbeck's 'Of Mice and Men' for English. I got an A for the essay by listening to the discussions and collecting a few notes. I still haven't read it. Sometimes when I tell that story to students they smile and nod.

  • Volume 31 Issue 1 - The power of the short story
    • Abstract: Harris, Tim
      Mr Semmler would lick his index finger and carefully turn the page. My eight-year- old classmates and I - whole-heartedly intrigued by the business of finger-licking- based traction - would turn to each other and smother our giggles, before re-entering the magical world our librarian had taken us. Mr Semmler's library was a truly wonderful place to visit. It was an exciting time to be a child.

  • Volume 31 Issue 1 - In my world: Developing empathy for difference
    • Abstract: Lander, Carole
      The short man who overheard this conversation was Jonathan Tripp. He was born with a condition of dwarfism. While he could see the funny side of the mother's reaction, it was just another incident in which an able-bodied, average-sized person found him amusing. This situation raises the question: how should children be introduced to the fact that some people are born and live with a disability? And how can parents and teachers develop empathy for them in the children under their charge?

  • Volume 31 Issue 1 - Pictures and words wy some illustrators become writers
    • Abstract: Rossell, Judith
      When I was a kid, I loved to draw. I liked writing stories as well, but drawing was more magical, and it was also much cooler, in a nerdy kind of way. Writing was really schoolwork. Nobody wanted to be caught doing schoolwork in their free time. I sometimes wrote little stories in secret, but in school I'd write the kind of thing I thought the teacher wanted, and it would come back with corrections and marks and comments. Drawing was different. It was always just for fun. Drawings never got handed in and corrected. Drawings could be funny, clever, subversive, scratched into the margins of maths books, or passed secretly around the classroom.

      In the past few months, my consultancy, Inventium, has spoken to over 50 teachers, parents and high school students. A striking finding of our research efforts was that there was a massive gap in the curriculum - teaching students practical skills to solve problems and innovate.

           humour encourages students to be creative
    • Abstract: Stanton, Matt
      According to research conducted by psychologist Richard Wiseman in 2002, the world's funniest joke is as follows:

      Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, 'My friend is dead! What can I do?' The operator says 'Calm down. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead.' There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says, 'OK, now what?'

  • Volume 30 Issue 4 - Debating supercharges persuasive writing
    • Abstract: Doyle, Elaine
      Persuasive writing plays a big part in the English curriculum. Throughout their school life, students write many persuasive pieces. Persuasive writing (and narrative writing) are such important skills. There is no point in writing a collection of garbled words with no structure or purpose. At the other end of the scale the lifeless personality of a 'shopping list'-style piece that skims across the top of many points is equally ineffective. Persuasive writing can motivate, inspire, sell an idea or product; it can move the reader into thoughts beyond their realm of experience. Students are measured and schools compared in persuasive writing through NAPLAN.

  • Volume 30 Issue 4 - I am not Plato ... but Plato's not here right now
    • Abstract: Monteath, Andrea
      I flatter myself but, as a middle-aged woman, I like to think that I have a few things in common with Plato. Specifically, we share a love of loose clothing, open-toed sandals, and the desire to nudge socio-political ideologies in the direction that we think is best. You see, Plato tinkered with the idea that, just because we have a system that works well enough, doesn't mean we should stop striving towards a model that works even better. Around 350BCE, he wrote The Republic, a sort of essay tucked inside a story, about his idea of the perfect society. To me, it resembles a modern, sci-phi dystopia - bleak and unforgiving. Essentially, his model implies that, as a citizen, you should, 'Stay in your designated lane, and do your job'. Plato's vision left little wiggle-room for artists or - more personally disturbing - for writers. Left-leaning centrists need not apply. I'm certain I would sink straight to the bottom of a society like that and, yet, I sense a need for change. Perhaps not Plato's kind, but definitely some kind. So, like every personal crusade I imagine from the safety of my study, I begin by taking stock of what we have. I go for a walk and observe the world. I read a little, watch a few videos, Google a bit, and this is what I see. It's my snapshot of the challenges ahead. Not all of them, of course (I'm not that conscientious), but a few of the bigger ones. I label these findings 'challenges' - these heroically elephantine tasks our children, and grandchildren, will have to conquer - because I'm an optimist.

    • Abstract: Gray, Martin
      School libraries have always been at the forefront of educational technology use within Australia. For many students, the first computer they had ready access to was the library search terminal. When interactive whiteboards or iPad pools start- ed to appear, they were often first placed in libraries, just as photocopiers or micro- fiche viewers had been decades before. The image of the school library as only full of books is not just out of date, it was probably never accurate at all.

  • Volume 30 Issue 3 - Your centre for Australian children's literature
    • Abstract: Alderman, Belle; Milne, Trish
      The National Centre for Australian Children's Literature is the nation's most comprehensive collection of material relating to Australian children's literature. Begun as the inspiration of one woman, Lu Rees, in 1974, the collection is now valued at over nine million dollars. It has a firm reputation among researchers, academics, teachers, students, bibliographers, librarians and the general public and forms a significant part of the nation's cultural heritage.

      The Centre's mission is not just to collect, document and preserve the collection. Our aim is to share it with as many people as possible through our outreach activities. Most importantly, we seek to share it with teachers and teacher librarians whose task it is to inspire new generations of children.

      This article introduces readers to the collection and to our activities and events. We invite readers to share our vision for the future and join with us in achieving a national centre of Australian children's literature for posterity.

  • Volume 30 Issue 3 - A most compelling suggestion: Steampunk as history
           lesson, call to ecological awareness and examination of feminism
    • Abstract: Cohen, William
      The role of fiction in the school library collection is generally limited to reading for pleasure or the use of a narrow range of texts for English. This article argues that the steampunk genre - a fusion of Victorian social mores with period science fiction - is ideal for inclusion in teaching subject- specific content, cross-curriculum priorities and examining gender roles in modern and historical society. A range of written, visual and digital texts is offered as examples, and the role of the teacher librarian is considered as a promoter of such genres and advocate for involving the school community.

    • Abstract: Forwood, Charlotte
      A little while ago, I was preparing for a lesson when a couple of very excited Year 5 students burst into my room and insisted that I accompany them back to their classroom. I was naturally curious about the reason for my summons. Imagine my surprise and delight when I realised I had been invited to watch budding actors and historians re- enact key events in history from different points of view. This was particularly thrilling because the students knew they were engaged in a history activity I had written as part of the new Macmillan History series of student and teacher resources.

    • Abstract: Kavanagh, Bec
      In reference to the study of English, the Australian Curriculum states that students will consider 'the audiences for whom [the texts] are intended', but rarely do young adults - that very audience - get a say in how and which texts they study. Now, more studies are proving the efficacy of student- directed learning - demonstrating that through empowerment comes engagement. In Australia, the annual Inky Awards, and the new Inky Awards Ambassador Program, offer teachers and students a way to bring this innovation into their English classrooms.

      In 2010 when I first started writing and presenting on e-books, I was asked to review an e-book reader for use in schools by a tech company. It was a standard e-paper type reader, similar to an early Kindle or Kobo. I concluded it would be good for fiction texts and maybe History, but not for a subject like Maths or Science, where you need to flick back and forth between examples and questions.

      Bullying is an unfortunate reality in most schools, and with the rise of social media, it doesn't stop in the schoolyard. There is a way schools can bring awareness and demonstrate intolerance to bullying with a new free technology, reword, that has recently launched in Australia. reword can help schools educate students on more effective and positive ways to communicate with each other online. We don't want to think of any of our students as bullies. But we can't control everything they do or say online, and often they don't even realise that what they're typing could be hurtful.

           review
    • Abstract:
      The Softlink Australian School Library Survey provides information on key trends and issues affecting Australian school libraries. The survey was initiated in 2010 to form a response to the Australian Government's Inquiry into school libraries and teacher librarians in Australian schools. Softlink has continued to survey Australian schools annually, and in 2015, extended the survey to include New Zealand schools.

      This article presents a five-year review (2010-2014) of the trends and issues reflected in the survey responses. It includes additional findings from Softlink's recently released 2015 Australian and New Zealand School Library Survey Report.

      Similar information was presented in a keynote presentation at the 2015 ASLA Conference in September by Susan Gan and Nathan Godfrey.

  • Volume 30 Issue 1 - Crossing literacy and informed learning boundaries
           with Manga
    • Abstract: Smeaton, Kathleen; Maybee, Clarence; Bruce, Christine; Hughes, Hilary
      This research investigated high school students' experiences of informed learning in a literacy development workshop. It was conducted in the library of an Australian high school with a low socio-economic population. Building upon students' fascination with Manga fiction and artwork, the workshop was part of a larger university - community engagement project, Crossing Boundaries with Reading, which aimed to address widespread literacy challenges at the school.

      The paper first provides a brief literature review that introduces the concept of informed learning, or the experience of using information to learn. In practice, informed learning fosters simultaneous learning about using information and learning about a topic. Thus, information is a transformative force that extends beyond functional information literacy skills. Then the paper outlines the phenomenographic methodology used in this study, the workshop context and the research participants. The findings reveal three different ways that students experienced the workshop: as an art lesson; as a life lesson; and as an informed learning lesson. The discussion highlights the power of informed learning as a holistic approach to information literacy education.

      The study's findings are significant as students from low socio-economic backgrounds are often at risk of experiencing disadvantage throughout their lives if they do not develop a range of literacies including the ability to use information effectively. Responding to this problem, the paper provides an empirically based example of informed learning to support further research and develop professional practice. While the research context is limited to one high school library, the findings are of potential value for teacher librarians, educators and information professionals elsewhere.
