Findings: Collaboration between teachers and teacher librarians resulted in productive pedagogy evidenced in intellectual quality, supportive environment, relevance and recognition of difference.

Abstract: This case study of a grade 9 research project details the specific ways in which a collaboratively taught unit of study supported principles of productive pedagogy. Students were guided in a closely supervised way through the process of inquiry that gradually lead to substantial learning. Neither collaboration nor high quality student learning occur easily. Detailed and continuous planning, scaffolding and monitoring are necessary for productive pedagogy. See:
