  • 18. Philosophy of Working Together• The teacher and librarian each bring their skills andresources to the party.• Work within your comfort zones and be supportive of eachother. It makes the students happier when they see apositive relationship happening.• Projects are designed around available resources. Confirmthat materials meet the needs for student success.• Offer students choices within parameters – help them ‘own’the project.• Begin with more basic projects, then build on thatfoundation. As complexity increases, remind students ofwhat they already know.• Be willing to take a risk and try something new. Have fun!
