Tip #180

Be ready with your elevator speech: An elevator speech is a short, highly focused 30-second way of sharing your message. AASL’s School Librarian’s Role in Reading Toolkit (http://www.ala.org/aasl/aaslissues/toolkits/slroleinreading/elevatorspeech) has some great examples but think how much powerful these examples would be in your setting if you could include specifics.  So for the speech that targets classroom teachers and starts with “I am your partner,” be ready to highlight a successful partnership and share the data that shows what a difference a recent collaborative project made in terms of student learning.
