      Hi all -

      I have an English degree and three years experience as a 5th/6th
      grade language arts teacher in a public school system. I will be
      taking my Praxis in March to earn my certification as a school
      librarian. I took the sample test, and got 9/10. (I missed a
      question on the difference between the Caldecott and the Newberry.)
      Based on that, I think I'll do well. Still, I was wondering if
      anyone out there who has already taken it could send me any words of
      advice. I know I need to know Bloom's Taxonomy, basic lesson
      planning, and research skills. How much of the test has to do with
      children's authors, classification systems, and the like?

      Thanks for your help.

      Jennelle

      How many of these trendy ed theories and fads do you expect to use in your job as a SLMS? BTW, I know not the difference between the Newberry and Caldecott

        the difference between the Newberry and Caldecott
        medals myself. Hard to say that makes me unqualified
        to be a school librarian, esp. since so much
        contemporary YA and youth fiction is slop.

            It nonetheless remains true that knowledge of this bit
            o'trivia is absoluely irrelevant to one's potential
            competence as a teacher-librarian.
