Skills in Isolation

Working in an fixed schedule environment puts limits on learning. Valuable research and library skills are being taught in isolation which then do not transfer to curriculum. If library time is used for "prep time" for teachers, the library media center is not available for true research to take place. It is very frustrating for the LMS to teach six library classes each day and still attempt to make the LMC available for research and collaborative projects. Districts need to evaluate statistics that prove that effective use of the LMC comes from having a flexible schedule.
