A COLLECTIVE CASE STUDY TO EXAMINE ADMINISTRATORS’ INSTRUCTIONAL LEADERSHIP PERSPECTIVE OF THE ROLE OF INSTRUCTIONAL COACHES AND TEACHER LIBRARIANS IN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Rating

The purpose of this collective case study was to develop an understanding of why California K12 public school administrators distribute instructional leadership responsibilities to either
instructional coaches or teacher librarians and how the two roles compare within the context of
the implementation of the California Common Core State Standards in ELA/Literacy. The study
addressed the following research questions: Why do administrators select instructional
coaches/teacher librarians to help them provide instructional leadership? How do administrators
and instructional coaches/teacher librarians work together to provide professional learning within
daily instructional practice? How do administrators evaluate the effectiveness of the
instructional coaches’/teacher librarians’ instructional leadership roles? Participants were district
administrators who oversee the population, site administrators who directly supervise site-based
instructional coaches or teacher librarians, and the corresponding instructional coaches and
teacher librarians. Data were collected from multiple sources, including documents, interviews,
observations, and focus groups with participants. Within-case and cross-case analyses were
conducted to develop a naturalistic generalization of what was learned about how the coach and
teacher librarian contributed to instructional leadership. Results demonstrated that administrators’
personal values influence their decisions to select and utilize instructional coaches or teacher
librarians to provide instructional leadership. Instructional coaches are considered to be extensions
of administrators as instructional leaders in ELA while teacher librarians are considered to be
resources that can be called upon to provide occasional instructional support in ELA.

A Journey to Improve Collaboration Efforts Between Stakeholders and Teacher Librarians
Rating

Collaboration between teachers and teacher librarians (TLs) faces fundamental challenges in the ...

Collaboration between teachers and teacher librarians (TLs) faces fundamental challenges in the high school setting. Studies of professional library organizations have suggested that collaborations between teachers and TLs are effective in improving student learning, encouraging personal reading, and raising digital citizenship awareness. The conceptual framework and structure of the teacher and librarian collaboration model (TLC-III) is based on the notion that robust collaboration efforts involving groups of teachers have positive effects on students. Researchers have validated the TLC-III model in studies with various groups of teachers and TLs as instructional partners, but have not done so at the high school level. The aim of this study was accordingly to validate the TLC-III model at this level with various high school teachers across disciplines and to determine why some choose to collaborate with TLs while others do not and the factors that influence the formation of a collaborative environment at a large, comprehensive high school. This mixed-method study relied on 62 anonymous surveys and 22 face-to-face interviews to assess what is needed to improve collaboration as part of the learning environment at this school.

This is the Future Ready Library Plan for the Portage Community School District. It lays out the 8 gears (and central gear of student centered literacy) individually. Each gear page discusses the focus, highlights what we are already doing to address the gear, and future plans to address areas of weakness. The plan is meant to be fluid in its website form that we will re-evaluate yearly to best meet our district needs.

Secondary Teacher Perceptions and Openness to Change Regarding Instruction in Information Literacy Skills

Information literacy skills are needed to help solve real-world problems, but K–12 students lack
these skills. The purpose of the study was to use Michael Fullan’s (2007) Change Theory
initiation phase to investigate teachers’ perceptions of their own openness to change and about
collaboration between a school librarian and a teacher in the context of information literacy
instruction. An explanatory sequential mixed-methods study was used to analyze teacher
perceptions by means of a quantitative survey and school librarians’ qualitative reactions
(gathered in interviews) to the results of the survey. Classroom teachers indicated a belief that
teaching information literacy skills was the role of both school librarians and teachers.
However, grading, assessing students’ progress, and teaching content-related information were
the role of the teacher. The classroom teachers and school librarians both reported
collaboration by dividing the lesson instead of working together on standards, planning, and
assessments. A key finding that could contribute to successful implementation of change is
gathering input from individual teachers by means of surveys and discussions in department
meetings and communicating educational changes through faculty and department meetings.
