METRO is proud to support collaboration and continuing education across our membership and beyond. The many topic-specific Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that we facilitate are central to our programming in this effort.
We are now considering the formation of a new SIG that will focus on the role of the librarian in students' transition from high school to college. The group's facilitators have kindly provided the following description:
“The High School to College Transition SIG provides an opportunity for high school and college librarians to share their experiences. The group will help high school librarians prepare students for college. Academic librarians will gain a better idea of where students are coming from and how they can help.
Through conversation, this SIG will work to ease students’ transition between high school and college.Topics of discussion and presentations include college readiness, the first year college experience, and enhancing critical thinking. Librarians from public and independent schools, college, and universities, as well as support staff, are welcome.”
Before we move ahead, we want to hear from you! If this is a topic that interests you and would be a valuable addition to METRO's programming, please sign our petition.
