I am interested in finding out what teachers and supervisors who are not preparing to be school librarians receive as training regarding the collaboration process between school librarians and other classroom teachers. For example, do any undergrad or graduate level programs provide opportunities for pre-service teachers or supervisors to participate in guided collaboration experiences with a school librarian about topics such as
lesson or curriculum planning? shared planning time?
choosing appropriate teaching resources?
planning to teach research skills? critical thinking skills? problem-solving skills? information literacy skills?
incorporating technology for a product, not just as a tool?
librarians as a resource for professional development?
teachers’ roles in print and electronic collection development/curation?
