Violet Harada, Carolyn Kirio, and Sandra Yamamoto have published Collaborating for Project-Based Learning in Grades 9-12. Harada is a professor in the Library and Information Science (LIS) Program, Department of Information and Computer Sciences. Kirio and Yamamoto, LIS alumni, are currently the cybrarians at Kapolei High School. Their high school was recognized as one of the 2006 National School Library Media Programs of the Year by the American Association of School Librarians and Follett Learning Resources.
The new text was published by Linworth Publishing, Inc., a national publisher of professional development resources for K-12 school professionals. While many texts have been published on project-based learning models, this is the first work that focuses on the high school librarian’s leadership role in the school improvement process.
