Certifying celebrity in the school library: Self-regulated learning in practice

Robin Spruce, Kasey Garrison

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


National Board Certification is the highest level of certification and teaching recognition an educator can attain in the United States. Core foundational tenets of this process hold strong connections to inherent elements of teacher librarianship including an emphasis on monitoring and developing student's selfregulated learning. This qualitative research compares two groups of teacher librarians (one National Board Certified and one non-certified) to investigate their perceptions and practice of self-regulated learning. Findings suggest similarities within the actual teaching practices of both groups but differences in the way the participants articulate the importance of such strategies in their practice.
