"Building Inquiry Partnerships" was a yearlong professional development course conducted in 2005-2006. The course emphasized an inquiry approach to learning, improving skills in instructional design, and nurturing librarian-teacher partnerships. This article describes the goals, design, and implementation of the course and summarizes the short-term and long-term results. It also highlights school team accomplishments during and after the course. The authors compile and analyze the information from the participants' self-reflections, interviews, and actual unit plans, along with exemplars of student work. (Contains 1 figure.)
