Friday Finds – Knowledge of Patrons


Have you seen the story about this Colorado teacher?  It is amazing.  With just a simple question posed to her students, she learned so much about her class.   She was shocked and surprised by many of their answers.  As librarians, we are charged with knowing our patrons and their interests.  This simple question could lead us to really start a conversation with many of our students.  You can use technology to gather your answers through a Google Doc, a Socrative quiz, a Kahoot!, or tweet/text your prompt to the students.  Try this prompt or come up with one of your own and give it a try!


Here is a link to the print story from The Washington Post and the video news story from ABC Broadcasting.
