Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This resource is designed "to help educators develop coteaching strategies to ensure student achievement." The first two introductory chapters cover collaboration and reading instruction. The majority of the book offers collaborative teaching strategies and detailed lesson plans written for the emerging, advancing, or advanced reader. Boxed figures of relevant information are also included throughout. A helpful glossary, list of resources, and index conclude the work. All elementary teacher-librarians, regardless of years of experience, will find much useful information in this book, which is supplemented with material found on a page within the ALA Web site, including printable graphic organizers, bookmarks, charts, and rubrics.

By Sara Paulson on March 2, 2008
Format: Paperback
I have been using this book a lot this year (2007-2008) and it has inspired me quite a bit. What particularly has inspired me is the strong case Judi makes for linking the library to literacy. It perhaps is a simple message in the introduction, but one that has guided me this year and given me a steady and sturdy focus. The best part of these lessons is that they dive deep into books, and the books she weaves her lessons around are some of the most wonderful out there.

In the day-to-day world of school library work, planning specific lessons is very time consuming. Judi has already done most of the planning for us in her book. All we need to do is revise her lesson plans a little and recruit a collaborating teacher to work with on the lessons. The lessons that have been included in this book are timely and relevant to the work that teacher librarians use. The format of the lessons make them easy to follow and implement. Because they tie so closely with the research skills that librarians are trying to review with students, they work very well. The suggested titles selected for use on reading nonfiction and note taking skills are fun and interesting. These books help motivate students to read the materials and we all know that great literature can be a key motivator! I would recommend Judi Moreillon's book to all teachers and teacher-librarians who need ideas and guidance for collaborative lesson planning to help make the greatest impact on student achievement.

No matter if you are a beginning or "seasoned" teacher-librarian and want to purchase just one book to support their professional development in 2008, this is the one! I have had the distinct pleasure of working collaboratively with Judi field testing several of the lessons included in her book. Implementing even one lesson of Judi's with your classroom-teachers will instantly increase your credibility as an educator in your school's professional learning community.
