  9. 9. Advocacy letter samples Australian School Library Association Inc. Why letters? Sample letters/templates can be an important part of any advocacy toolkit. It is just one of many resources that could be directed at politicians, principals, parent bodies such as the Parents & Friends Association, Parent Council or other equivalent. Sending letters to influence a decision means targeting the decision makers or key stakeholder(s). Choose your audience carefully to maximise the impact. Two letter samples are available: 1. One directed towards a politician that highlights the critical role of school libraries and teacher librarians. 2. One from IASL: International Association of School Libraries, with a similar focus and also directed towards a politician. 1

  13. 13. Possible scenario to personalise your message Australian School Library Association Inc. 13 SCENARIO 1 Tom is 12 and in his first year at High School. He is having trouble keeping up with all of his subjects and is starting to fall behind. Tom spends a lot of his time online, both at school and at home. Unfortunately, Tom’s limited research skills are affecting his ability to achieve the best results. Tom relies on Google for his research but his lack of knowledge in using effective search terms and techniques means he wastes a lot of time sifting through trying to find the information he really needs. Tom also doesn’t know how to locate credible websites that are… With the ongoing support of his Teacher Librarian, Tom found he was able to improve his results and manage his school workload more effectively. Without a qualified Teacher Librarian, how would Tom and many others like him, cope with the increasing demands of a crowded curriculum and a challenging assessment regime?
