Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Although this book is certainly a guide for librarians who want to align their library program to educational standards, it is just as useful for classroom teachers needing to redesign their curriculum around standards and also for administrators who are looking for strategies for successful team planning. In addition to making the case for why teachers and librarians need to collaborate, Miller offers a description of the roles that librarians, teachers, and administrators play in the process. She provides guidelines on how to structure units and emphasizes the importance of integrating information skills into the curriculum. She further guides readers by providing model lesson plans for units in kindergarten through eighth grade. Each model includes the unit objectives, the time frame involved, the procedure to implement the unit, and the learning standards that the unit addresses. Although no specific high school units are provided, Miller gives suggestions on how secondary schools can use the models to develop their own units. The appendixes contain additional helpful information, including a section on ideas for finding time to collaboratively plan, a template for curriculum mapping, and a compilation of National Content Standards. With the current educational atmosphere focused on standards and engaged learning, this book provides a short but informative overview. Those who are struggling to collaborate or those who are searching for a structure for planning interdisciplinary units will find some of Miller's ideas practical and usable. 2004, Linworth, 128p.; Index. Further Reading. Appendix., Ages adult professional.
