To aid school librarians in nurturing inclusive learning communities, AASL tasked a 2019 ALA Emerging Leaders team with developing a guide of reflection activities and resources based on the Include Shared Foundation in the National School Library Standards.
The Developing Inclusive Learners and Citizens Activity Guide uses scenarios, activities, and resources to help learners and school librarians alike seek balanced perspectives, global learning, empathy, tolerance, and equity to support inclusive environments within and beyond the four walls of the school library. An infographic and applied framework further support application of these materials in professional development and instructional settings. This guide is a great example to any practitioner of how the AASL Standards can be used as a lens to address ANY school library issue! Resource Guide | Applied Framework | Infographic.

Something Familiar and Something New: Unpacking the Standards. Drs.
Elizabeth Burns and Marcia Mardis discuss the new standards. Did you get your copy of the new standards yet? I must tell you that I am officially excited about them. While I was at the conference, I attended the “AASL ESLS Research Symposium.” The purpose of the symposium was to get an overview of the standards and how they apply to research in school librarianship. Here are some of my takeaways from the session that I will keep in mind as I review my materials. The standards are written to reflect both formal and informal learning environments.Three approaches are addressed with applicable domains and competencies. Here are some additional features that I liked about the standards: Here are a few ways that you can get familiar with the new standards and the resources included in them.

To help explore the AASL Standards and facilitate professional conversation, AASL has created a deck of cards that can be used by school librarians as a professional development tool.
This game was designed to aid in conceptualizing the standards, developing implementation strategies, considering differing approaches with stakeholders, and promoting conversation among practitioners. The deck is split into five sections. Basic game play instructions are provided, with ideas for alternate playing rules. As you get familiar with the game and with the AASL Standards, feel free to get creative and create new rules and new learner or stakeholder personas to meet the needs of your community.
