Reader's advisory for teens can be very challenging, due to the fact that teens often simply don't know what they want to read or what's available to them. Add to that the interference of a parent or guardian during a reference interview with a teen and you may never be able to get their hands on a book that they will really love.

 

In this webinar participants will learn practical skills for effective reader's advisory to teens and their guardians. Participants will learn specific ways to:

 

    Talk to teens about what they like 

    Remain unbiased and non-judgmental about a teen's interests and needs

    Recognize opportunities for informal instruction during a reference transaction

    Address a teen directly, without the interference of a parent or guardian

    Quickly get reading material into the hands of interested readers

    Provide high-interest reading material to reluctant readers
