item3Powering Achievement: School Library Media Programs Make a Difference: The Evidence

Hundreds of school librarians have made presentations about the Lance studies linking school library media programs to achievement. The third edition of this standard work helps presenters even more by updating every presentation to include all 14 of the Lance studies through the Illinois study completed in 2005. Yes, there is still a one minute, a five minute, and a 15 minute presentation complete with PowerPoint slides available on the LMC Source website for download but every one has been updated and re-phrased if needed by the addition of all 14 studies in some 8,000 schools. In addition to the presentations, there are many discussion starters to help school librarians conduct focus groups centering on various aspects of the library media program that boost achievement. This new edition also has doubled the size of the appendixes with many handout connected to the various studies in the book. And finally, there are many studies both listed and described that exist beyond the Lance studies; the Ohio study by Ross Todd being just one example. Any school library media specialist who anticipates making any kind of presentation about the Lance studies or other studies linking library media programs to achievement should have this new edition.
