The teacher librarian and her colleague deliver a lesson that forms part of a year 7 unit on Ancient Rome. The librarian brings to the collaboration an understanding of appropriate print and digital curriculum resources suitable to the task. She also recognises the importance of information literacy and how this needs to be taught to students. Following a classroom demonstration, she and her colleague support students in a group note taking activity using a wide range of selected resources. These include a digital translator that is used by a student with limited English vocabulary. The teacher librarian then meets with the teacher to evaluate the lesson and discuss future interventions to ensure students can meet the desired learning outcomes.
