Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"One aspect of being a media specialist that most of us will admit that we could use help with is collaboration. This book explains the process' history, benefits, variations, and constraints. Buzzeo devised a template for collaborative activities, which was used in the 17 fully developed collaborative units that follow, each of which was written by a practicing school librarian. The units include an overview, a time frame, and content area standards for the state in which it was written; Information Power Information Literacy Standards; and a cooperative teaching plan delineating the responsibilities of the school library media specialist and the teacher. Also provided are a list of resources, both print and electronic; the product or culminating activity; an assessment overview; handouts; and rubrics. It's easier to pique teachers' interest in the collaborative process, and for them to understand it, if you have a model to show them. Part of what makes this book so useful is that it not only provides such a model, but also offers great ideas for units to hook teachers. This volume is a treasure: having read it, I now have several new units that I'm excited to share with my teachers. Bibliographies. Highly Recommended."

Library Media Connection

School Library Journal
Meshing current research on teacher/librarian collaboration with practical applications, this title is a worthy purchase. It clearly outlines the history of teacher/librarian partnerships, as well as the current status and professional philosophy about this topic. Conditions for success in creating these partnerships and practical advice for initiating joint instructional efforts are included, as well. Buzzeo recommends using a template to plan for shared instruction, and includes an organized, efficient model. The majority of the book is devoted to showcasing some actual examples of collaborative activities. The unit plans cross all curricular areas. They include illustrations of handouts, rubrics, note-taking sheets, and more. Some sample titles are "Artistic Connections," "A Biome Vacation: Travel Brochures," "Literature Genre Study," "Extreme Themes of World War II," and "Re-creating the American Civil War Era." Useful, well-researched information combines with practical advice in this handy, valuable title.-Beth Jones, Shelby County High School, Shelbyville, KY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
