  • Kendra Duckworth, Librarian

  • Longfellow Library…

  • Where We

  • PAWS

  • To Read

  • Everyday!

A Place Where

Everyone has

Their Own


Co teaching

  • How Does It Happen….

  • Sometimes it is planned…

  • Other times, it just works out – Accidentally PERFECT!!

  • It is based on the needs of the teacher/students.

  • Because my campus still believes in a fixed schedule, I have ONE day a week to co-teach and show teachers the benefits of when we work together!

  • How Do I Help…

  • By attending monthly content area meetings and hearing what teachers are doing in their classrooms and what resources they need, I target a needed concept and approach a willing teacher that wants more than just resources I can hand to them, but will actually use ME as a resource in their classroom.

  • By my presence in the classroom, there is more teacher to student interaction to assess comprehension and learning.

  • Plan your collaborative lesson and make sure it is documented.

  • This makes it easier to make changes for the next time, add components to the lesson, and share with another teacher when they are ready to do a similar lesson with you.

Planning Sheets found:




  • There are many types of planning sheets available. Find one that works for you and the teacher you are working with.

  • Though this one lesson, many Reading skills can be covered:

  • TEKS 2(B)/AASL 1.1.3- Ask relevant questions, seek clarification, and locate facts and details about stories and other texts and support answers with evidence from text.

  • TEKS(9)/AASL 1.1.7 Reading/Comprehension of Literary Text/Literary Nonfiction: Make sense of information gathered from diverse sources by identifying misconceptions, main and supporting ideas, conflicting information, and point of view or bias.

  • TEKS 13(A)/AASL 1.1.5 - identify the details or facts that support the main idea.

  • TEKS 13(D)/ AASL 1.1.4 - use text features (e.g., bold print, captions, key words, italics) to locate information and make and verify predictions about contents of text.

  • TEKS 29(A)/AASL 1.1.9 Listen attentively to speakers, ask relevant questions, and make pertinent comments.

  • TEKS 31/AASL 1.1.9 Collaborate with others to broaden and deepen understanding.

  • I am sure we could link many others to this lesson if needed!

  • CO-Teaching…

  • This lesson happened quite “accidentally”!

  • The teacher was asking for informational text to use with her students.

  • She wanted to use magazine articles.

  • In a literacy training, we read about Tanny McGregor’s Comprehension Connections – Bridges to Strategic Reading and teaching students how to separate “Fact from Fluff” and determining importance.
