Miller Place High School
Teen Read Week
A student comes into the library, breathless, and says "That quote, a book, I know it. How do I enter? Please pick mine. I really want to win." (P.S. She did win that day!)

Classes in the library
Feel free to bring your classes to the library for lessons on following information literacy topics:
NoodleTools--a great database that will allow students to create and store bibliographic citations and electronic notecards to aid in their research process. Consider it an electronic suitcase for all their research needs.
Booktalks--bring your classes in to hear about some great books and have them pick one of their own for independent reading.
Research Skills--you can bring your classes in to learn about accessing, locating, evaluating and ethically using information from the databases and many other tools. These lessons can be done for short mini-research projects (1 period) or longer, extended projects. For example, your seniors might need a refresher (or introduction) to using the databases for finding good, reliable research or maybe you want your students to create an infographic after researching a topic. We are here to help you and your students with all their research needs!
Digital Citizenship/Digital Footprints--Maybe you want to bring your students in for a lesson that demonstrates that their behavior online can leave long lasting "footprints" that may follow them longer than they think!
