Title:Getting personal
Author(s):Nelson, Sarah Beth
Subject(s):Storytelling
Community
Personal stories
Agency
Abstract:Start with yourself. The author first got this advice when planning a World War II program for British primary students and continues to bring this philosophy into her teaching. During the past year, the author has used personal stories to connect with current and prospective students and to paint a picture of the real life of a librarian. She also makes a space for students to talk about themselves, creating a feeling of “we’re all in this together” and providing them a greater sense of agency in these uncertain times. Getting personal will continue to serve us as educators in the coming years as we train students who are whole human beings and will bring themselves to their libraries and classrooms.
