Best practice tells us that school librarians must support the needs of classroom teachers and help increase student achievement. This goal can be met through effective teamwork and collaboration with a key literacy focus. Literacy is now everyone's job. School library media specialists are no longer just an important part of the crew-they are the captains With increasing demands and decreasing time, media specialists are feeling like fish out of water when it comes to quality collaboration. Just creating quality lesson plans and surviving the hectic school day is hard enough leaving many educators without the time or energy to collaborate. Busy teacher-librarians will no longer have to sink or swim on their own-this book will allow them to dive into managed independent work stations, literacy stations, collaborative units, and many other literacy-rich activities. Grades K-12.
