Collaborative partnerships between
teacher-librarian and teacher and inquiry
-based learning go hand-in-hand. Collaborative
planning and teaching is a process
whereby the teacher-librarian and
teacher work together as co-partners in
the design, implementation, and assessment
of inquiry-based learning opportunities. It also includes the purposeful integration
of resources and skills or competencies
required for students to successfully
utilize the materials and meet the learning
*Information literacy skills * Technology skills *Media skills *Reading/literacy strategies *Digital citizenship skills *etc.
One such project has been the collaboration with Mme Beatch who teaches 5/6 English Language Arts. We worked together to lead the students in an inquiry based project about Aboriginal history. They learned the writing process of a story, historical fiction as a genre and graphic novels as a medium. They put together ideas from their research and created on-line graphic novels in Sway.
