Are you the victim of “drive-by” collaboration? Do you get the sense that even if you are teaching all the time, your instruction is not ever fully and systematically embedded into school-wide instructional goals? Do you wish library resources were more seamlessly integrated into classroom instruction? Join us for a day of hands-on, participant-centered learning as we share concrete, immediately implementable strategies and a practical plan to deeply embed library instruction and resources into the curricular goals of your building.
