Media Center Minute @ GMS

The Monthly Library Media Center Newsletter

Welcome to the 2015-16 School Year!

I am very excited to start the year. Information literacy skills are very important to our 21st century digital learners. It is my goal to help students and staff to become savvy information seekers, inquisitive life-long learners, and enthusiastic readers!


To start, a student orientation will be held for students during their ELA class and it is my hope to hold a staff orientation as well (schedule/time and date TBD). Teachers will receive a Library Media Center brochure that has more information on services available.

Website(s) of the Month!

Teachingbooks.net

This is a website that GMS currently subscribes to. It is a great place for ELA teachers to access interviews with authors, lesson plans, etc. When introducing a new book, to your small groups, in your classroom this is a great site to get students excited and hooked on the book! Check it out: http://teachingbooks.net.


It may ask for your school email address the first time you go to the website. You will also need to login:
