From the Publisher
Time-strapped educators wonder whether partnering with school librarians can realistically improve students’ scores, but studies show that collaboration improves overall effectiveness in increasing students’ reading comprehension. Moreillon, a veteran teacher-librarian, updates Collaborative Strategies for Teaching Reading Comprehension to draw on cutting-edge research in instructional strategies, offering a clear, rigorous roadmap to teaching reading comprehension in a proven collaborative process. Incorporating the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Standards for the 21st-Century Learner, Moreillon presents
  • Strategies for improving reading comprehension, complete with updated graphic organizers, sample lesson plans, and technology-centered examples
  • Practical steps for streamlining the coteaching lesson-planning process, boiling it down to three levels of literacy development
  • Techniques for strengthening collaborative partnerships through flexible design and delivery 
  • Guidance for incorporating library programs into research-driven teaching practices
As part of the U.S.-wide drive to improve test scores and build a nation of readers, Moreillon’s book offers proven teamwork tools to accomplish both goals.
