My research will deal with this particular question: How do we educate parents, teachers, counselors, and librarians on the need for using bibliotherapy in the classroom and at home to help with students’ (and gifted students) relevant hardships and emotional issues?
I think that I will pursue this question by exploring these topics through the University of Alabama database:
- Gifted education professional development
- Connecting public libraries and schools
- Using public libraries to educate teachers
- Making a professional network for public and private educational professionals
It seems the more I talk about connecting public libraries and schools, the more people tell me they try to do this and fail. That there always seems to be a disconnect somewhere along in the process. I hope by connecting the dots through the professionals themselves, perhaps I can make headway into streamlining the process of making these two institutions work together.
