    Implementation Plan

    Teacher's Role

    Classroom teachers will introduce the theme "A Seed is a Promise" to the students and attempt to familiarize them with a variety of resources through various classroom activities. (One such activity may involve lessons in cutting and pasting using a word processing program.) The teachers, in their classrooms, will help to remind students of the skills learned previously, which they will use at these stations, and they will help to teach new skills that the students are going to practice. The teachers will assist students in the Library Resource Centre, to read, view and write, as they interact with the various resources. Teachers may also take the resources from some of the stations to their classrooms, when additional time is needed, in order to complete the work. Teachers will also examine the student booklets to check on the students' progress.

    Teacher-Librarian's Role

    The Teacher-Librarian will prepare the booklets for the students, gather the resources, arrange for a guest speaker, and set up the learning stations in the Library Resource Centre. She will also keep track of the students progress on a tracking sheet, which will identify which stations the students have completed. The booklets will be examined daily to see how well students are completing each station, and to determine if an additional mini-lesson should be given, on a particular activity, or on the new skills introduced. The Teacher-Librarian, along with the classroom teacher, will assist students at the various learning stations, and will evaluate the booklets when completed, by writing a comment to the students on their behavior, work ethic and ability, or level of understanding.

    Schedule for Activities and Time Frame - 5 weeks

    Step 1

    Classes were booked into the library every day for at least one-half hour to three quarters of an hour, for approximately two weeks. This entire unit, however, extends for approximately two weeks prior to and one week after the students participate at the learning stations in the Library Resource Centre. This theme is taught in the month of April or May when grade two students are more capable of independently reading and writing well.

    Evaluation: Assessment of Students, Evaluation of Activity and Author Study

    Students were being monitored throughout this activity by both the Teacher-Librarian and the classroom teacher. Students received immediate feedback on their behavior and performance. Once the booklets are completed, the Teacher-Librarian will evaluate them, giving general comments on the appearance of the student's work, their work ethic and effort given, and the student's level of understanding and achievement.
