Bookcase Briefs @ASFG

Learning, Literacy, Collaboraton and Innovation


This site is to support ASFG students and teachers on how to cite text and digital material in MLA style. MLA was adopted by the school as the format for citing work in all classes. A team of Mexican program and American program teachers worked together to ensure consistency across programs. Workshops will soon be available in both languages for teachers. In the meanwhile, please use this page to support your learners and/or ask Victoria or Jennie to teach a mini lesson. Beyond citing and acknowledging the work of others, citation work improves evaluation of sources and deepens the research process.

Grade 5 enjoys alternative class trip in the library

Twelve grade 5 students enjoyed Maker activities as part of their school stay-cation. The group enjoyed learning how to use 123D design software to design a 3D project which was then sent to the 3D printer for printing. They learned about electronics using the littleBits innovation set. It seems their favorite Maker activity was getting to be the first students to try the Spheros (robotic balls). They learned how to code/program the balls to run routines and work obstacle courses. The three days was filled with engaging self directed learning and fun. A shout out to collaboration and our tech integrators.
