Bec in the library

Selection criteria March 8, 2011

Consider which is the more appropriate approach for determining the general selection criteria to be used in a school, the commonly used approach employed by Port Lincoln Primary School or the alternative proposed by Hughes-Hassell and Mancall? Can you suggest an alternative approach which would incorporate the teaching and learning environment within the key general selection criteria?

I prefer the H-H&M set of criteria as they are:

  • extremely specific which makes it easier to relate to curriculum
  • written in questions that TLs and teachers can clearly understand and answer
  • more likely to result in resources being purchased that are key to the curriculum and ‘most appropriate’ for the teaching and learning context, not just because the orderer likes it
