It’s very interesting, outside of the education world: people are afraid to talk to teachers. I don’t mean everyone, and I don’t mean librarians. I mean in the general sense of everything. They are seen as exclusive, defensive, and stubborn. And they are, sometimes. And I can’t blame them. Probably because I was one of them.

This post is about our Library Stars
tour FIELD TRIP ADVENTURE, and can be considered on its own or as a continuation of this post.
Very soon—perhaps alarmingly soon—after your grant has been
accepted, it’s time to plan what the
tour will actually look like. The schools,
with whom you’ll be collaborating, will want to know intricate details about
the tour. In the early stages of
planning and school collaboration, this may feel excessive; but having your
hows/whys down will help solidify teacher buy-in and satiate all worriers.
