Excerpt

In April 2004, a site committee of library specialists representing the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) conducted a two-day site visit at Lois Lenski Elementary, near Denver, Colorado. The specialists observed classes, looked at student portfolios, and interviewed students, teachers, community members, and district staff.

Their goal: To assess Lenski's library media/technology program for evidence that, by working in collaboration to plan, teach, and assess students, the library media staff and teachers were implementing a cohesive instructional plan to train students to access and use information effectively.

By the end of the visit, the specialists commented not only on the seamless integration of library skills with content area instruction, but how uniquely Lenski had blended a strong technology program into the partnership of classroom teachers and library media specialists to enrich students' experiences. On the recommendation of the site visit committee, Lenski was named the elementary school winner of the 2004 AASL Library Media Program of the Year.
