|Title:||Teacher Professional Development and the Role of the Teacher Librarian||Contributor(s):||Bainbridge, Joyce (author); Carbanaro, Mike (author); Wolodko, Brenda (author)||Publication Date:||2002||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/8279||Abstract:||Recent media coverage focused attention on a perceived "crisis" in Canada's school libraries. Research findings in the U.S. have consistently shown positive relationships between student achievement and the presence of well-staffed and well-stocked school libraries. In Alberta, Canada, the number of qualified teacher-librarians has decreased drastically over the last twenty years. A web-based survey of 170 Alberta elementary teachers, and follow-up telephone interviews with fourteen teachers, revealed that 60% of respondents' schools had no teacher-librarian. As a result, teachers acknowledged a need for increased professional support in selecting materials, planning instructional units, and accessing resources.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||International Electronic Journal for Leadership in Learning, v.6||Publisher:||University of Calgary Press||Place of Publication:||Calgary, Canada||ISSN:||1206-9620||Field of Research (FOR):||130103 Higher Education||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||930202 Teacher and Instructor Development||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.ucalgary.ca/iejll/bainbridge_carbonaro_wolodko||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 339
