Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This action research study involved the school librarian, principal and one classroom teacher in Elementary School A. The researcher asked what strategies, actions, and organizers were necessary to facilitate effective collaborative guided inquiry practices. Data from planning one guided inquiry lesson, interviews, emails, conversations, observations, formative assessments, reflections, lesson plans, a curriculum map, and ongoing field notes showed that brief meetings and communication make collaboration time efficient and meaningful. Additional findings indicate that by developing ongoing, meaningful, professional relationships, working to eliminate unnecessary tasks, and making the most of available time and resources could improve the collaborative climate in Elementary School A.
