School Library Media Specialist, Olentangy Orange Middle School, Olentangy Local Schools
Congratulations Kelly Silwani,
February Rosen Publishing Ohio School Librarian of the Month!
Congratulations, Kelly Silwani, school library media specialist at Olentangy Orange Middle School, Olentangy Local School District. Kelly is the Rosen Publishing Ohio School Librarian of the Month - February.
Kelly’s lesson entitled “Truth or Faux.” As she explains it, 7th and 8th grade students, using “close reading” had to evaluate photos and determine if they were real or fake or AI. The goal of the lesson is for students to evaluate and corroborate media sources for credibility and accuracy using close reading. Students evaluated fifteen (15) images and used close reading (evaluating critically) to determine if an image was fake (fauxtography) or real. They also evaluated real vs AI images. By the end of the lesson, students were able to apply new evaluation techniques to images. You can follow Kelly on X at Kelly Silwani, MLIS.
