The teacher and librarian work together to develop and present an instructional unit that incorporates:
Content Standards: Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Math
Information Literacy: Research, Note-Taking, Website Navigation, PowerPoint, Word, and more....
The benefits to the teacher and students include:
Access to resources: It's a librarian's job to provide resources to teachers and students.
Technical expertise: The consortium of RI Librarians provides librarians training on current technology.
Teacher-Student Ratio: Two teachers supporting students at the same time!
School librarians are educators who cross disciplines and grade levels as they work to empower every student with the skills, resources, and tools to:
inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge;
draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge;
share knowledge and participate ethically and productively as members of our democratic society;
pursue personal and aesthetic growth.
The ability to think, create, share, and grow in school and beyond is called Learning4Life.
