Haycock, Ken, Comp.
Summaries of research findings on the following topics are compiled in this document: (1) students in schools with well-equipped resource centers and teacher-librarians perform better on achievement tests; (2) developing student competence in research and study skills is most effective when integrated with classroom instruction through cooperative planning and team teaching; (3) teacher-librarians who are extroverted and less cautious tend to be more successful; (4) teacher-librarians in secondary schools are not as involved in cooperative programs with classroom colleagues as principals, teachers, and teacher-librarians think they should be; (5) secondary school resource centers are more effective when designed according to the needs of the instructional program and student population; (6) students generally use libraries as a complement to school resource centers and generally prefer books to other resources; (7) the role of the principal is the key factor in the development of effective school library programs; (8) school library media coordinators have positive effects on library program development in the school district, but experience role conflict in their work; (9) teacher-librarians need to publish more about teacher-librarianship and school library programs; and (10) continuing education opportunities need to be increased for teacher-librarians. Each of the findings is presented on a separate page together with additional comments on the research and several references. (SD)
