    Copyright-free Music and Videos
    The challenge with recommending music sites is that the fine print regarding terms of use is sometimes very fine and applies to particular songs rather than to all works downloadable from the site. I have used Creative Commons to search for copyright-free music.

    A Word about the Filming: I asked a question and recorded the responses for the 2001 videos. For the most recent recordings, I wanted teachers to talk freely so I was not present during the filming. Unfortunately, I lost control of the quality. Still, for the purposes of citing these sources, you may give my name as the "interviewer." Please see the sample citation below.
    I have added a brief description of the context of each educator's testimonial. Please read this background information before you view the videos. You will want to think about the context as well as the testimonial itself as you analyze these data. You will want to record keywords and phrases or even record actual quotes to include in A.1.4.

    Principal: Paula's Testimonial filmed by Judi Moreillon (2001) (1 minute, 1 second) Paula was completing her first year as an elementary principal at the time this video was recorded. While earning her principal certificate, her two youngest children attended a Library Power school with a well-developed model for classroom-library collaboration. She entered the principalship with expectations that classroom teachers and the teacher-librarian would engage in high-quality partnerships to impact student learning.
    Principal: Paula's Testimonial filmed (2014) (1 minute, 42 seconds) Paula shared her understanding of the role of an elementary school librarian as a leader in instruction.
    7th-Grade Language Arts Teacher: Mary Ann's Testimonial filmed in 2009 (3 minutes, 53 seconds) Mary Ann taught 7th-grade language arts at the time of this testimonial. She and I collaborated a few times during the school year, but our instructional partnership was strengthened during the 7th-grade interdisciplinary unit. To begin that unit, I gathered and organized historical fiction novels by time period and booktalked titles to individual or small groups of students as they made their selections. We continued to work together throughout the unit, which lasted from November through the end of February. Mary Ann's testimonial focuses on a week-long project we did at the end of the school year. Throughout the year, she had been sharing and discussing quotations with students. I focused my suggestion for this mini-unit on quotations as a way to connect that learning experience with identifying topics in picture book texts.
    7th-Grade Social Studies Teacher: Pat's Testimonial filmed in 2009 (51 seconds) Pat teaches 7th-grade social studies. For the most part, she teaches the social studies curriculum through the textbook. Along with language arts teacher Mary Ann and me, she cotaught the classroom-library 7th-grade interdisciplinary unit, which included students building background knowledge by reading a historical fiction novel before using trade books to research an event from American history. Students used the 7th-Grade Inquiry Pathfinder for this project. The project Pat describes in her testimonial centered on students locating copyright-free, public domain photographs or other illustrations related to an event or topic from the Great Depression. They created visual PowerPoint presentations, which they projected, while orally sharing the information they had learned from the textbook and Web-based resources.
