Description : Building on inquiry-learning theory and research, this text explores how inquiry process models and questioning protocols can be used and modified to develop curious and reflective lifelong learners and problem solvers while simultaneously fostering a school-wide inquiry culture. Part of the Shared Foundations series, this book examines effective implementation of the Shared Foundation Inquire from the National School Library Standards. By studying Inquire through the Domains, readers will see how the Competencies and Alignments support and demonstrate learner growth in the inquiry process and can reflect on their practices in a variety of K-12 settings. Loaded with ideas and strategies to grow critical, systematic thinkers who design solutions to authentic problems, this book features - theoretical discussion of the research framing Inquire and strategies for cultivating inquiry cultures that extend beyond the school library; - application of common process models and questioning techniques aligned with the Inquire Domains, showing learner growth in the inquiry process through personalized inquiry paths; - no-tech, low-tech, and high-tech tools and examples for supporting inquiry learning in school library settings with various levels of support; - lesson plans contributed by K-12 school librarians demonstrating integration of the Inquire Competencies with core content areas; and - figures and tables to illustrate more complex ideas in both theory and practice. This deep dive into Inquire supports school librarians working with other educators to design inquiry-based learning experiences that improve learner outcomes, personalize inquiry paths, and engage learners with core content.

Description : Marcus Johnson has just been named star quarterback for the Marina High School Pirates. Former quarterback Brad Timmerman will do anything to depose this new rival and regain his position and popularity—including setting up Marcus with Maria Cruz, who is HIV positive. As secrets are exposed, this encounter will shake the halls of Marina High and change the lives of these students forever. AIDS in the End Zone approaches HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention through a compelling narrative with high school drama, the dangers of high-risk behaviors, and the benefits of public health resources. The graphic novella is the result of an innovative collaboration between editors Kendra S. Albright and Karen W. Gavigan, illustrator Sarah Petrulis, and the authors—students at the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice (SCDJJ). Albright and Gavigan began this project in response to research indicating that the graphic novel format is a highly successful educational tool for motivating young adults to read. They chose HIV/AIDS as their topic because South Carolina ranks eighth in the nation for new HIV cases, while the capital city of Columbia ranks sixth nationally among metropolitan areas. By working with teen students at the SCDJJ, Albright and Gavigan were able to develop characters, a storyline, setting, and dialog as a collaborative project—engaging the students in the public health subject matter as well as in the creative process. This project was funded in part by a grant from the Association for Library and Information Science Education.
