Submit Your AASL Standards Story for Consideration for the May/June KQ

Since AASL introduced the National School Library Standards in November 2017, there have been so many engaging stories shared about how school librarians, library supervisors, library educators, and other stakeholders are working with the standards to invigorate their practice.  

Now, we want to hear your story! The May/June 2019 issue of Knowledge Quest will feature articles about the practice, theory, research, and/or policy implications of the National School Library Standards, and Jennisen Lucas and I (guest editors for the issue) invite you to submit an abstract for possible publication. Possible topics include:

  • How you are implementing the standards at your level, including pre-service and in-service school librarians
  • How your learners have responded to the standards
  • The connections between the AASL Standards and other professional standards (ISTE, Common Core, NGSS, etc.)
  • How the AASL Standards have inspired collaborations between you and other educators or community stakeholders
  • The research or theoretical analysis the AASL Standards have inspired

Submit your 150-200 word proposed abstract by Thursday, October 25! We will review proposals, seeking a wide variety of levels, approaches, and geographical areas, and will notify selected authors by Friday, November 2. First drafts of completed articles (maximum 3,000 words) will be due Friday, December 21.

Questions? Contact kqeditor@ala.org.

We look forward to reading your proposal!
