School and Community Connections for Collaboration and Coteaching
Kilker, Jean
Knowledge Quest, v40 n4 p38-45 Mar-Apr 2012
School librarians should consistently build relationships to foster collaborative work. For the school librarian, collaboration begins with both the business side of the library and personal interactions. True collaborations involve varied partnerships with shared planning and responsibilities. A co-teacher is expected to share in all aspects of students' learning. To be a valued partner includes sharing the work that goes into effective teaching. The school librarian must be notable for teaching classes, preparing lessons, and working with students to an extent that matches the content teacher. Connecting classrooms, school library, school, and community is one sure way to build instructional partnerships. Working together achieves success! (Contains 4 figures.)
