Course DescriptionTeacher Librarian Part One focuses on the role of the teacher-librarian and the school library learning commons in the instructional program of the school. We explore strategies for engaging readers, supporting inquiry-based learning, developing information literacy, and using technology for learning within a collaborative and cross-curricular teaching program.
