Collaboration Ideas

I'd like to start a discussion about how different librarians are collaborating with classroom teachers.  I'd like to hear about success stories, problems, etc. I'm also interested in finding out about schools that have officially adopted some kind of information literacy/school library media/guided inquiry program and how that came to be.

Greetings Carolyn,

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight.

If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!
