A teacher librarian works with teachers to plan and review a student research unit on Ancient Rome. Reference is made to a student survey, which has established the students’ levels of understanding of the inquiry process. Expected learning outcomes are identified along with the research task, the final product, formal assessment and opportunities for student self-reflection. The teacher librarian uses professional expertise to identify a range of print and digital curriculum resources that the students can use in the information gathering and a note-taking process. Following the delivery of the planned lessons, the teacher librarian and her colleagues formally evaluate the unit.
