Even though research, such as the “Colorado Study,” shows how good libraries and staffs improve student learning, individual teacher-librarians must become aware of the research and work with their principals and parents. Oberg likened this to a “novice” and “expert” view of the world, again using the metaphor of a nurse. Some might see a nurse tucking a patient into bed and think that is all they do, but, in reality, they also make critical observations about the patient. Dr. Oberg is concerned about the inequity across the province and that “have-not” schools are increasing in number.
Would teachers benefit if they were “made to go”? If educators are not learners and continuous learners, we are impediments to equity. Taylor mentioned the “Kellogg Report” (1996), a study done through the Benton Foundation in the United States on how library leaders see the future of libraries and how the public sees it. Librarians pictured hybrid institutions with librarian navigators. The public was not sure if libraries should be this kind of electronic hub but rather on the margin—doing readings, etc.
Stripling and I discussed that action research would be a good model for student research. She added that many teachers require content; in the school library, we strive to teach process. Teacher-librarians must become a part of every classroom experience with collaborative planning and teaching. Stripling made an interesting distinction between the “cooperative planning” teacher-librarians were using and “collaborative planning,” a higher level of cooperative planning that is more challenging and rewarding.
