I am a new member of FOSIL and currently teaching Kindergarten in Sydney Australia. As part of my research to become a Teacher Librarian, I came across the FOSIL inquiry model. I am very interested in learning more from the TL perspective. I have taught through inquiry using PYP and other models but FOSIL is of particular interest as it seems to value the TL role. Can I ask how you created the reading grid? I am designing a unit of inquiry for our children to explore force and motion and I want to embed the use of books in the unit. I really like the way you modelled that in your example. My TL always brings a box of related texts to my classroom at the beginning of a unit but as we do not collaborate in the process of designing the program it is true what J Jones says, I do not always use them with the class. So often I already have my own books in mind. As I move to the TL role, I hope to be more involved in planning with the teachers so that I am truly supporting the learning in the classroom.
