Gale, part of Cengage Learning, and Library Media Connection magazine are calling all media specialists and educators at K-12 public and private schools in the U.S. and Canada to share their collaboration success stories and submit for the 2013 TEAMS Award – Teachers and Media Specialists Influencing Student Achievement.
The TEAMS Award recognizes teacher–media specialist teams in elementary, middle and high school settings for their collaboration to promote learning and achievement. Examples of efforts that have been recognized include: a collaborative school-wide project involving the art, music, physical education and computer teachers; a program to improve student research skills using authenticated, credible websites; and an integrating digital curriculum with Google Docs. The nomination may be submitted by a library media specialist, teacher, principal, student or parent for work done in the 2011-12 or 2012-13 school year.
The three winning teams will each receive a cash award, Gale products, a one-year subscription to Library Media Connection and the Educator’s Professional Bookshelf from Linworth Publishing/Libraries Unlimited.
