Literature Connections: The Teacher and Teacher-Librarian Partnership.
British Columbia Dept. of Education, Victoria. Learning Resources Branch.
This book is designed to help teachers, teacher-librarians, administrators, and district staff create a literature program that integrates literature within the context of resource-based learning. The book is organized into three sections. Part 1: "Critical Components of Learning through Literature" discusses in detail how each of the components vital to learning through literature may be implemented in a library resource center program by teachers and teacher-librarians as they plan and teach together. These critical components identified in Part 1 are intrinsically tied to three essential focuses of a literature program: building a climate for literacy; applying current knowledge about the nature of student learning processes; and the refinement and maintenance of sound instructional practice. Part 2: "Critical Components Applied" provides teachers and teacher-librarians with nine cooperatively-planned sample unit outlines that incorporate many of the critical components identified in Part 1. Part 3: "Reference List and Notes" provides a list of those references cited in Part 1, as well as a list of notes. A Critical Components Chart at the beginning of the book shows how one or more of the three essential focuses identified in Part 1 underlie and underpin the critical components and is intended as a tool that administrators, teachers, and teacher-librarians may use to focus discussion and assessment of their current literature program. Contains five pages of references. (AEF)
