Summary: One unique strategy to coteaching is from a teacher librarian who took a proactive approach by providing teachers with a menu of collaborative options that she offered. She looked closely at her own standards and how they could align with those of the first and second grade teachers in her school. She was careful to offer options with a brief description but didn’t give too many details because she wanted to leave room for the teacher and herself to truly collaborate by creating and coteaching the lesson and/or unit plan together.
Evaluation: This article is an easy read and is helpful for people who aren’t too familiar with the dynamic between teachers and school librarians. This article does a good job of explaining the challenges and offering a unique solution.
