"Put a teacher-librarian on your team"

Lean on your teacher-librarian.

An article by Karen Lindsay, that appeared in the Sept 2005 issue of Teacher Newsmagazine,

"No one needs to tell you that the demands of teaching are constantly increasing. Our students have so many more needs, and need so many more skills than they once did to be successful. Curricular change seems like the only constant along with increasing class sizes. Nevertheless, it is important that students receive research assignments that teach them how to locate, evaluate, and use today's information, both in school and beyond. No one person can be expected to have the experience, knowledge, and time to teach information literacy and technology skills, while continuing to teach the child, and the curriculum. Teaching in today's school demands a team approach. Lean on your teacher-librarian."
