Review quote

"This practical, research-based volume is packed with project-based ideas for the high school teacher-librarian and partnering classroom teachers. Based on the solid experience of its authors, the curricular ideas include thoughtful questions, connections with standards, timelines, assessment checkpoints, rubrics, resources, and descriptions of effective student work. A welcome addition to the professional collection for any high school. Highly recommended. Professional." - Pennsylvania School Librarians Association "The first chapter provides an excellent introduction to project-based learning (PGL) which lays the ground work for the rest of the book's focus... This book provides a huge jump start to teachers and middle and high school librarians that need to incorporate project-based learning into their curriculum. With the background and project outlines provided in Collaborating for Project-Based Learning in Grads 9-12, educators will be able to create their own project-based learning lessons and units that are uniquely suited to their students' needs, and strengths." - Colorado Association of Libraries "If you believe, as these authors do, that 'an entire generation of kids will fail to make the grade in the global economy because they can't think their way through abstract problems, work in teams...,' you will find this study of the role of collaboration in project-based learning an excellent source. They have researched and made a compelling case that project-based learning not only serves the student best but allows teachers and librarians to become instructional leaders. Then they follow it with clear and concise methods to achieve authentic school improvement and student learning. They have included lesson plans, rubrics, and templates for the professional educator to follow and use. Their organization, writing style, and documentation are easy to use and understand. If you are ready to try project-based learning (and the book has a section on making sure you are) then you couldn't ask for a better book. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connectionshow more
