Reflection: Co-Teaching Inspiring Students to Read Nonfiction Part 2 - Section 1: Warm Up


If you are not utilizing your school librarian, I encourage you to make that a goal.  I am very fortunate to have a librarian who loves to step out of the library and into the classroom for coteaching.  Today's lesson is just one example of how she assists in classrooms and/or brings our classes to her to partner up for a purpose.

I'd like to share a favorite article on this topic -"Why You Need Your School Librarian". The article was written by a friend of mine who served as Kentucky Teacher of the Year in the year prior to my year of service as Kentucky Teacher of the Year.  Check it out when you have a second -I know you have so much down time, right? Seriously, consider it and the possibly untapped talent in your librarian.
