Partners In Learning
By Ray Doiron
This practical and concrete guide shows you how to establish a collaborative approach in program planning, resource-based learning, teaching information process, and evaluation. It will give you an understanding of the integrated school library program as well as an appreciation of its benefits. After describing changes in the role of the teacher-librarian (or school library media specialist), the authors provide a rationale for creating an active partnership among teachers, librarians, and students. Innovative resource-based units of study for all elementary grades demonstrate how the partnership works in relation to author studies, literary themes, social studies, and science. All projects have been successfully classroom tested. This practical approach will appeal equally to teacher-librarians and classroom teachers. The book can also be used in introductory courses on school library programs and in courses on resource- based learning.
