K-6 teacher-librarians may be interested in the resources available to support my newly published book,
Collaborative Strategies for Teaching
(ALA Editions, 2007).
ALA Editions hosts a Web page with all of the graphic organizers, rubrics, and sample student work that teacher-librarians need to coteach 21
reading comprehension strategy lessons with classroom teacher colleagues:

Teacher-librarians from around the country are field testing the lessons. As they complete their work, I am adding photos, more sample student
work, new ideas for lesson extensions, and much more on my personal Web space at:

Elementary Library Routines Wiki
This wiki was born from a short Twitter conversation and the admiration of the work of
is a website for Elementary Librarians. Here you can find a yearly curriculum map and lesson plans that incorporate
Common Core and AASL standards. Added July 2012.
I've put together a
"Writing Lesson Idea
s" document which can be used in the library, a classroom, an after-school library program, or for a
public library writing program. It includes ideas shared at the Minnesota State Fair Children's Literature Network booth by Lisa Bullard, author
of the book
You Can Write a Story
ISBN 13: 978-1-58728-587-5,
published by TwoCan Press in 2007.
Worth reading and thinking about is this month's ALSC Blog post by Philip Lee entitled "Food Literacy: Connecting Good Eats to Good Reads," at
Philip Lee is co-founder of Readers to Eaters
http://www.readerstoeaters.com). Readers to Eaters publishes
books on food literacy, displays and sells books at farmers'
markets, and helps to sponsor food literacy programs at the public library. Many school and public libraries are growing
community gardens, so think about planning a library program after school or in the summers on the topic of food literacy.

I hope these resources help teacher-librarians strengthen their co-teaching practices in one area of the curriculum that is critical to all K-6 classroom
teachers, reading comprehension!
