March 6, 2013 by Joyce Valenza 13 Comments However compelling the research is, it can be hard to make the case with a 30-page study, or even a executive summary. Sometimes you need the visually attractive, embeddable, tweetable version of the elevator speech. Last month, the New Jersey Association of School Librarians (NJASL), announced the release of School Libraries: a Lesson in Student Success. The data presented on this poster clearly illustrate learners’ need for the information literacy skills instruction provided by certified school library media specialists in well-funded school libraries. The NJ Study and numerous other national studies prove beyond a doubt that certified school librarians and well-funded school library programs have a positive impact on student achievement. Paige Jaeger, Coordinator for School Library Services at New York’s WSWHE Boses, created this infographic sharing the NYLA SSL slogan, Many reasons you need your librarian. News, thoughts, and discoveries at the vortex of libraries, literacy, learning, discovery and play.
SUMMARY SKILLSWriting a good summary demonstrates that you clearly understand a text and that you can make your readers understand what you are trying to say.

Clipping is a handy way to collect and organize the most important slides from a presentation.
Ask them to write introduction (Do not tell anything beyond this) of their respective partners.
However, parents, school board members, administrators, teachers,legislators and others outside the library community are often unaware of just how valuable school librarians and strong school library programs are to preparing students for college and careers. Joyce is an Assistant Professor at Rutgers University's School of Communication and Information, an edtech Sherpa, and a connector. A summary can be tough to write at first as you might include too much or too little information.
NJASL developed the infographic to facilitate the dissemination of these facts since our students’ futures depend on it. However, with the help of this 8-step method, you will be able to summarise texts quickly and successfully for any class or subject.
Also, label areas that should be avoided because the details — although they may be interesting — are too specific or unrelated. In the previous steps, you have divided the selection into sections and located the author’s main ideas and points.

From the sentences, you should be able to create a thesis statement that clearly communicates what the entire text was trying to achieve.
If you find that you are unable to do this step, then you should return to STEP 4 and make sure your sentences actually addressed key points. You can use the thesis statement as the introductory sentence of your summary, and your other sentences can make up the body. Add some transition words (for example: then, however, also, moreover) that help with the overall structure and flow of the summary. Also, check to make sure that your text does not contain your own commentary on the selection. If you do not, you may have focused too much on one area of the piece and not enough on the author’s main idea.
