ABSTRACT
The author comments on a research finding which states that students are served best by teachers and teacher-librarians who collaborate to develop disciplined inquiry programs. Students need to learn a framework or process to perform disciplined inquiry, guided by teachers who collaboratively follow students' processes with support and scaffolding through mentoring and social negotiation. Where student teachers and their sponsor teachers learn information literacy strategies and where sponsors practice and critique these strategies, there is better opportunity for their incorporation into the ongoing classroom program.
