Teacher / Librarian Collaboration

New research examines classroom teachers' perceptions of their own openness to change and collaborating with school librarians in the context of information literacy instruction. Classroom teachers indicated a belief that teaching information literacy skills was the role of both school librarians and teachers. However, grading and teaching content were the role of the teacher. Collaboration usually consisted of dividing up the lesson rather than working together on standards, planning and assessment. Implementing change is facilitated through surveys and faculty/department meeting discussion.
