Resources for School Librarians

**NetSmartz Offers Free Internet Safety e-Book for Children**NetSmartz Workshop, a program of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, has a new and exciting way for children ages 5-10 to learn important Internet safety lessons. In its first e-book, Delivery for Webster, children learn why it's important to ask a trusted adult before sharing their information online. Delivery for Webster features animated graphics, dramatic sound effects, and a "read-to-me" narration for early readers. Parents, educators, school librarians, childcare providers, and others can also utilize the accompanying discussion guide to start a conversation about Webster's adventure, pop-ups, and personal information with children.*

*TED Offers New Education Platform and Free Video Lessons**TED, a nonprofit organization, has launched a brand-new TED-Ed website with tools to help educators use video in the classroom. The new platform allows educators to take any useful educational video and create a customized lesson around it. Users can distribute the lessons, publicly or privately, and track their impact on a class or an individual student. Educators also can browse TED content based on the subject they teach. Each video on the TED-Ed site is tagged to a curriculum subject and is accompanied by supplementary materials to help educators and students use or understand the video lesson. Supplementary materials include multiple-choice questions, open-answer questions, and links to more information on the topic. The site also offers an innovative customization program called “flipping” that allows educators to customize supplementary materials and render lessons on a new and private web page, and a TED-Ed YouTube channel with free video lessons by leaders in innovation and thinking.

**Endangered Species Day Resources Now Available for School Librarians**School librarians throughout the country are encouraged to help celebrate the 7th annual national Endangered Species Day on May 18. The goal of Endangered Species Day is to educate people about the importance of protecting our rare, threatened, and endangered animal and plant species. Endangered Species Day provides an opportunity for community and school libraries to educate the public about the importance of protecting endangered species. The following are a few of the potential ways that libraries can participate in Endangered Species Day:
  1. Display/share an Endangered Species Reading List.
  2. Create an exhibit of endangered species-related books, photos and artwork.
  3. Host an Endangered Species Day activity, such as a book reading by a librarian or local celebrity. You can also provide special handouts including bookmark, activity/coloring book and other material available from the Endangered Species Day Toolkit.
A variety of resources are also available on the Endangered Species Day Website:
  • Planning/Hosting an Endangered Species Day Event: The Endangered Species Day Toolkit includes information on planning an activity, along with bookmarks, stickers, activity books and other material that can be downloaded and printed.
  • Reading List: A suggested book list for young people and adult readers.
  • Photos/Artwork: You can find links to photos of threatened and endangered species from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other sources, along with artwork from the 2011Endangered Species Day Youth Art Contest.
**Involve Students in Food Day with Free Resources**
Food movement leaders are gearing up for the second annual Food Day on October 24, the nationwide celebration of healthy, affordable, and sustainably produced food. Food Day brings together organizations and individuals working on food issues as varied as hunger, nutrition, agriculture policy, animal welfare, and farmworker justice. The Food Day Website offers resources for educators interested in getting their schools involved, including a curriculum that provides teaching tools and example activities for elementary, middle, and high school students. More than 2,300 events in all 50 states took place on the first Food Day in 2011, and organizers intend for Food Day 2012 to represent an even bigger grassroots campaign for improved food policies. For more information on how to get involved with Food Day events, visit the Website.
