This article is written by Tara Jones, an elementary librarian who decided to take on a new role of research technology specialist at a 6-12 school. She describes her journey from a traditional librarian to co-teacher. She explains how she had to rethink how librarians collaborate with teachers. Her process included finding partner teachers, researching curriculum and analyzing technological tools. She also explains the seven models of co-teaching and what worked best for her and her partner teachers.
I enjoyed reading this article because it was a real life example of someone who had gone through the process of updating her librarian role. She gives great advice about the struggles of co-teaching and how to work through them. I also thought this article was helpful because it breaks down the seven models of co-teaching briefly. I highly recommend reading it if you are looking for information on what it takes to become a co-teacher and maintain a good co-teaching relationship.
