Congratulations to the Winners of the ACRL-Oregon School/Academic Librarian Collaboration Scholarship

We are pleased to announce the recipients of funding for the current cycle of the ACRL-Oregon School/Academic Librarian Collaboration Scholarship: Richenda Hawkins of Linn-Benton Community College and Jean Gritter of West Albany High School. This scholarship was created to foster collaboration between academic librarians and school librarians.

The goal of their project is to identify which OASL and ACRL information literacy standards and indicators are being taught in writing and speech/communication classes at Linn-Benton Community College (LBCC) and local high schools, and to gather, create, and share related curriculum resources. Ms. Gritter has already been working with local school librarians to define the scope and sequence of IL skills taught at the high schools; LBCC librarians have been mapping IL-related learning outcomes taught in LBCC writing and communication classes and working with faculty to increase outcomes attainment. This project will combine those efforts to bring together the information and resources to improve IL skills in grades 9-16 in Linn and Benton counties.

Hawkins and Gritter will work on this project over the next year. They plan to upload resources they create – lesson plans, activities, and tutorials — to the Community Archive, LBCC’s institutional repository; these resources will also be created with Creative Commons open licensing. They plan to disseminate their project results during school district professional learning days, college department meetings, and at the 2019 OLA conference.

Our congratulations to Richenda Hawkins and Jean Gritter. We look forward to your successful collaboration and to seeing the outcomes of this work!
