Teacher Resources

We are here to partner with all area schools and invite you to inform us of any large projects your class will be pursuing or any other informational needs that we might assist you with in your role as educator.  (Please take a look at our Teacher Alert Form.)  We would be very glad to hear from you.

Assignment Alert

Please let us know about up-coming assignments so that we may better serve you and your classes and ensure a positive library experience for your students. If you have copies of bibliographies that you would like to share with us, they would also be helpful. Download the Assignment Alert form and send it by

ALA's Top 25 Websites for Teaching and Learning 

The list honors the top free websites that help school librarians and their teaching colleagues enhance learning and curriculum development.

 

 

ERIC (Free Version)

ERIC provides ready access to education literature to support the use of educational research and information to improve practice in learning, teaching, educational decision-making, and research.

F.R.E.E. 

The Federal Registry for Educational Excellence provides teaching and learning resources from Federal Agencies.

Group Tours and School Visits

Schools, daycares, scout groups and other community organizations are encouraged to bring their classes to the library for a visit.  Please call 313.531.5960 ext. 117 to schedule your class visit.  A children’s librarian will be happy to tailor your visit to your needs.  Children may receive library cards if they are Redford residents or attend Redford schools.

Library card applications are required to be completed by the children’s parents before the class visit as library staff is unable to process so many new cards at one time.  Thank you.
