Overview

The purpose of The Library-Classroom Partnership is to assist library teachers and classroom teachers to effectively use the library and its resources as an extension of the classroom. As in the earlier edition, the lessons included in this book stress the library media skills needed by individuals for lifelong learning. Long after adults have forgotten a particular fact of history or the techniques of balancing an equation, they continue to use library skills to answer their questions and to meet the demands of an ever-changing society. It has been well documented that the skills taught in a library are most effectively learned within the context of classroom work. To this end, the librarian and the teacher must form a working team to take each other's ideas and develop them into effective learning experiences for students. The authors have incorporated the teaching of those library media skills with every discipline taught in the school. Through these lessons, students will realize that research and reference are a vital part of the learning process, complementing and enriching every subject. The eleven disciplines (English, mathematics, social studies, science, art, music, home and careers, technology, physical education, health, and foreign language) normally taught in the junior high and middle schools are addressed in this work. To be included, a lesson must be a learning experience in both the library skills and the subject areas. Each unit has been cooperatively developed using the expertise of the school library media specialist and the subject teacher. All lessons have been implemented successfully in the junior high and middle school environment. This revised and expanded edition of The Library Classroom- Partnership also deals with technology and the changing economic and social conditions affecting public schools. It includes a new section on reading enrichment as well as instruction in accessing information electronically.

VOYA - Cheryl Karp Ward
In this revised and expanded second edition, Jweid and Rizzo address social, economic, and technological changes that have greatly impacted the delivery of information. Recognizing that active collaboration between library media specialists and classroom teachers is crucial in promoting information literacy in the educational process, the authors used the expertise of media specialists and subject area teachers in two suburban schools. With New York State Education Department's information skills syllabus as criteria, instructional units were created for eleven curriculum areas commonly taught in middle and junior high schools. Each discipline presents several units designed to integrate library skills across the curriculum. For example, lessons available for social studies include civil rights, explorers, immigration, colonial life, and presidents. Objectives are clearly stated, and activities define the roles of the teacher and media specialist. Lists of resources and materials in a variety of formats-print, electronic, and Internet-provide a solid reference base. Black line activity pages come complete with answer keys. Suggested methods of pupil assessment range from standard worksheets and research papers, to more multimedia projects such as models and video productions. All units can be expanded and modified. In addition, five library orientation units offer instruction on the use of basic research tools: on-line catalog, Internet, periodical indexes in book and electronic form, pamphlet file, and microfiche. Familiarizing students with reference materials, and exercises on note taking and creating correct bibliographies, further enrich this source. The focus of all strong media programs must be preparing students to become informed decision makers, fostering a desire for lifelong learning, and initiating mastery in the use of informational technologies. This professional reference is invaluable in establishing the teamwork essential to a learning-centered facility. Source Notes. Appendix.
