Title:collaboration of school librarians and teachers of life skills services
Author(s):Stacie Milburn
Subject(s):School Librarianship Special Education Life Skills Services Inclusivity Collaboration
Abstract:Almost 14% of the k-12 student population in the United States are students that receive special education services (NCES, 2020). Without the proper support, students that receive special education services can experience difficulties while learning. The severity of the learning, cognitive, or physical disability also affects the learning experience of the student. Life Skills Services (LSS) have been developed for students that have severe disabilities that make learning difficult even with accommodations. Research has shown that school librarians and teachers collaborate to support student learning and achievement. Yet, there hasn’t been a focus on evaluating the collaborative relationship between the school librarian and teachers of LSS. This study aims to use Montiel-Overall's (2008) Teacher and Librarian Collaboration Model (TLC Model) for teachers and librarians to evaluate the effects of special education teachers’ and school librarians’ perceptions of library services for students that receive LSS on their willingness to collaborate in k-12 public schools across the United States. Data analysis methods will include sentiment analysis, substantive coding, and descriptive statistics to examine any correlations that exist among participants.
