Teens and Tweens: What they need from us and we want from them

The Southwest Chapter of the Pennsylvania Library Association is seeking presenters for its spring workshop, “Teens and Tweens: What they need from us and we want from them.”

Tweens are considered to be between the age of 10-12 and teens are 13-19.  Interacting with them has an impact on all types of librarians.  For school librarians, these students span the world between children’s and young adult resources as they learn how to access and process information. For public librarians, serving this group runs the gamut from collection development to programming. For academic librarians, how public and school librarians serve these groups determines how prepared for college work they are when they arrive as freshman. Presenters should consider how to meet the needs of this age group while presenting on best practices for bridging the transition from pre-adolescent – to teen – to adult.

Presentations are open to school, public, and academic librarians. To submit a workshop proposal click here… https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SWChapterspringworkshop2017

Deadline for proposal submission is March 17, 2017

Quality learning experiences for attendees should be designed using approaches that engage participants in active learning and lead to maximum retention.

Presentations selected for the program will include a wide variety of topics in several specific formats. All proposals will be evaluated according to established criteria. Following a peer review only the highest quality presentations that best fit the framework of the Convocation will be added to the program. To help you get started review the educational strands and suggested topics here.

Workshops
[May be scheduled on any day of the 3-day conference; 60-minutes]
KDP is seeking workshop presenters who will engage attendees in innovative ways, create highly interactive sessions, and provide opportunities for application and use of the information. Ideally, the format should be no more than 50% delivered information, with the rest of the session including interactive or hands-on engagement. 

EdTalks
[May be scheduled on any day of the 3-day conference; 15 minutes within a 60-minute session]
Individuals will have 15 minutes to share a tightly focused presentation, followed by a 15-minute block at the end for questions and discussion. KDP will select and group three topically related presentations within each session.

Story Slams
[May be scheduled on any day of the 3-day conference; 10 minutes within a 60-minute session]
Real stories are an engaging way to convey impactful messages and lessons. In this format, selected presenters must share a personal story from their own experience in a way that includes a lesson in overcoming an obstacle in a school, team, or professional setting or a teaching strategy. KDP will assign each presenter to a group so that attendees will listen to a series of five presenters, each presenter sharing a 10-minute story.

Chapter Posters
[Saturday only, 75-minute session]
Set up like a gallery, this poster session provides an informal way for chapters to share best practices and successful strategies within the Chapter Member Engagement Model. Through a poster display, a prepared 10–15 minute presentation, and handouts, posters offer new ideas for programming, leadership, and chapter management that current and future leaders can take back to their respective chapters. Possible topics for this poster session include service projects, officer training, member retention programs, fundraising practices, collaboration with community agencies, literacy programs, and strategies for becoming an Achieving Chapter of Excellence (ACE) chapter.

that brings together the work of scholars, writers, artists and activists
who are committed to the study and representation of working-class life. We

The inaugural issue <https://workingclassstudiesjournal.com/> features an
introduction by editors Sarah Attfield and Liz Giuffre; articles by leaders

Russo, Jack Metzgar, and Michael Zweig; and work from emerging voices whose
scholarship focuses on the many intersections of class. Also included are
reviews of books by Tim Sheard, Michelle Tokarczyk and George Lakey.

We invite submissions that contribute significant knowledge to our
understanding of who the global working class(es) are and have been, as
well as what it means to ‘study’ class, conceptually and as a
socio-economic reality. We especially encourage work that explores how
class intersects with other vectors of identity and experience, including
race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, ability, and citizenship status.  The
journal reviews books that feature working-class people, communities,
culture, history, politics, and/or experience as a crucial component of
their scholarly or artistic vision. We also invite artists to submit short
comics or excerpts of longer works. For further information about
submissions, please visit our “Instructions for Authors
<https://workingclassstudiesjournal.com/instructions-for-authors/>” page.

Formed in 2003, the Working-Class Studies Association

culture. The Working-Class Studies Association is made up of academics,
activists, teachers, writers, poets, journalists, practitioners, students,
artists and a wide range of others interested in developing the field of
working-class studies. The organization holds an annual conference as well
as other events to promote the field (including a variety of awards), and
act as a discussion forum for working-class issues. The organization is
based in North America and has members world-wide.
