Every classroom teacher and library media specialist could benefit from an authoritative, clear roadmap for navigating the Isolation, Coordination, Cooperation, and Collaboration (ICCC) continuum. The seemingly simple question: "How do I collaborate?" has a multitude of sides and layers that defies an easy answer.

Destination Collaboration 1: A Complete Research Focused Curriculum Guidebook to Educate 21st Century Leaners in Grades 3-5 is a research-focused book containing four chapters: Notetaking, Public Access Catalog, Informational Text, and Online Resources. Each includes two or three lesson plans for each grade level (3rd, 4th, and 5th). Content-focused, learner-driven, and based on national content curriculum standards as well as media, information literacy, and technology standards, this complete curriculum guide provides unit plans as well as interactive electronic activities, manipulatives, worksheets, and presentations.

Each chapter begins with information regarding the use of the lessons in isolation. Coordination and cooperation tips are provided at the beginning of each lesson, and ideas for collaborative, inquiry-based projects are included at the end of each grade-level unit. Each lesson plan is written in a comprehensive manner and includes suggestions for technology integration and modification of the lessons to meet the needs of all learners. An accompanying website furnishes additional useful materials.
