I’m Rachel and I am the School Librarian at Altrincham Grammar School for Girls where I have been working for about 3 years. Prior to that I worked at Stockport School Library Service, a brilliant service which, sadly, no longer exists.
We are starting to address the need to teach research and inquiry skills in school. Students have been developing their information literacy skills through a planned programme in Years 7 and 8 library lessons. I have also been involved in research lessons for Year 12 at the start of their EPQ.
I am curious to learn more about the FOSIL framework because it offers the potential for teachers and librarians to collaborate effectively.
