Preparation: The program requires 1-2 hours of preparation for each module to review facilitator instructions, gather materials, and consider activity alterations/additions.
Implementation: The program includes 10 modules of activities (approx. 20 hours total). The curriculum can be provided in multiple configurations, such as a 5-day model, weekend model, or 2-hour increments extended over a period of time that works best with library scheduling.
Research: This is not a “canned program” but one that has an active research component. Therefore, in addition to program implementation, selected librarians/library staff will need to: dedicate 1 hour/month for attending virtual meetings with other library systems implementing the program; approximately 1 hour for interacting with a peer coach during implementation; 1 hour/month during the 4-6 months before implementation for performing recruitment.
As an external evaluator, David Reider’s job is to examine the development and operation of the project. He is not evaluating librarians/library staff. He will attend at least one implementation session per site for approximately one-full day. David’s interactions with girls will be minimal. At times, David will ask librarians/library staff questions but this will occur during out-of-session time.
