AIMing at Tweens was a workshop previously offered by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA).
“Tweens are often the ones who slip between the cracks: not children and not quite young adults. This YALSA online course will focus on the developmental needs and interests of tweens and how we can best meet those needs and interests in terms of books, activities, and programming. Participants will describe the developmental needs of the tween including physical, intellectual, moral, and social aspects; discuss how librarians can meets the developmental needs of tweens; identify books and related materials that are developmentally appropriate for tweens; develop resources for use with tweens; and share ideas for working effectively with tweens. Young adult librarians, school librarians, administrators and any literacy-focused professional who works directly with tweens will find this course helpful.”
