Collaboration and Connection: A University Outreach Program for High School Librarians and English Teachers
Ewbank, Ann Dutton; Guy, Melissa; Tharp, Julie; Welty, Ellen
Library Media Connection, v30 n2 p28-30 Oct 2011
In today's knowledge economy, both high school and university educators must ensure that students are equipped with the proficiencies needed to transition from high school to college and, ultimately, from college to the workplace. As librarians at Arizona State University (ASU), the authors sought to develop a local program that would support this goal. The Collaboration and Connection project teams ASU Libraries, ASU's Writing Programs, and ASU's Academic Success programs with area high school English teachers and librarians. The authors' goal was simple: Provide a forum that allows high school and university educators to engage in a dialog about how best to prepare students for university-level research and writing. In their area, few opportunities exist for high school and university faculty and librarians to get together and talk about student success across the "grade 12-13 gap." The Collaboration and Connection project creates that opportunity.
