Athletes as Readers and Leaders Program at College of San Mateo
Check out this beautiful student video about the College of San Mateo version of CSLA's best practice, Athletes as Readers and Leaders.
Film student Alex King created the video project for the College of San Mateo Digital Media Department. His campus customers were Library Director Lorrita Ford and Child Development Center Director Louise Piper. Last year, Lorrita took the program concept and "shopped" it with Louise and campus athletic leaders. The rest is history. For other samples of Alex King's films, see A.K. Film Production and Editing.
At CSLA's conference exhibit, "The Doctor is IN" partnership advice booth, the Athletes as Readers and Leaders program was a popular example of a wonderful and rewarding partnership program. See the "how to" tutorial at athletereadersleaders.csla.net/ -- Thanks go to program creator Napa Valley Schools Director of Library Services, Kate McMillan.
