Workshop Description:














School librarians cannot afford to be considered on the periphery in education, nor can they be considered support staff.

There are tremendous benefits for schools from successful collaboration efforts between classroom teachers and the school librarian. Collaborative lessons with classroom teachers can support the development of vibrant, curriculum centered school library programming that effectively meets students' development and learning needs. Effective collaboration requires commitment from the school librarian to building and maintaining relationships with teachers and integrating classroom needs with administrative curriculum goals, library programming activities, and collection development efforts.


This course will help you develop the skills necessary to:

  • devise strategies to collaborate and overcome obstacles such as fixed scheduling
  • recognize and cultivate opportunities to collaborate with teachers
  • maximize the impact of the library program by linking technology, subject area curricula and library skills
  • produce technology shortcuts that will lead to co-teaching, and
  • construct lessons using tools, tips, templates, and references offered in this course


The course addresses these issues and more in a web-based course designed to take about 1 1/2 hours to complete. It contains multimedia elements, external links, pre- and post-tests, and course evaluation modules.
Workshop Certification: No special certifications are associated with this workshop.
