From both a theoretical and research perspective, coteaching is simply the most powerful foundational program element a teacher librarian can have to make a difference in teaching and learning. This collection of articles from Teacher Librarian magazine brings together the power of coteaching between classroom teachers and teacher librarians. Thus, this collection can serve as a conversational piece of professional development or the basis of explaining and working with a school faculty on this powerful tool and strategy. The collection begins with the eloquent theoretical background of coteaching by Dr. Ross Todd and others, followed by a new and simple building level measure of coteaching impact by David V. Loertscher, Keith Curry Lance, and others who have successfully measured the impact of coteaching. In another section, various authors outline exemplary practices used by teacher librarians as they embed themselves in various aspects of learning experiences. Finally, there are a number of articles by teacher librarians reporting and showcasing their success in their schools and how they went about building their own track records. This essential collection, all in one handy volume is a treasury of the best thinking and practices as teacher librarians build a learning commons program and demonstrate their indispensability.
