Fall 2018: Read. Explore. Repeat.
Freshmen English classes participated in a BreakoutEDU at the beginning of the year to learn about their new library. Working in teams, students found given fiction and non-fiction books by using the OPAC. All classes successfully “broke in” by locating all their books (which held clues that unlocked the locks) while exercising the core values of perseverance, collaboration, and active learning!
What does it mean to be a good digital citizen? The civics teachers and I incorporated this essential question into an early unit on citizenship, collaborating to emphasize not only making safe choices, but also ways to use digital tools to positively contribute to the community. Students will continue to develop their digital citizenship skills throughout the year as we learn strategies for searching for quality sources, analyzing information, and citing appropriately.
The makerspace offers students an opportunity to tinker, create, and explore. We have robots and a 3D printer as well as activities like origami. Students can even take apart dead electronics! Featured this month: a community puzzle. Stop by to put a few pieces together.
The EHHS LMC partnered with the East Hampton Public Library to put books in students’ hands! Working together, we were able to buy multiple copies of all ten Nutmeg Book Award nominees and circulate them among high school students starting back in June. Teenagers in Connecticut vote for their favorite Nutmeg nominee in April. For more information, go to https://www.nutmegaward.org/.
