November Edition, Part I
These past couple of weeks, we've been busy working with teachers and students on a variety of projects. We've worked with...
- 8th grade civics students on PBL assignments related to the election
- 7th and 8th grade theater students on using fairytales, legends, and myths to create their own screenplays
- 8th grade English students on research assignments linked to To Kill a Mockingbird and I am Malala
- 7th and 8th grade students on research skills lessons: conducting keyword searches, using the FCPS databases, avoiding plagiarism, and using Noodle Tools to create Works Cited pages

Battle of the Books Update
As a reminder, Battle of the Books (BOB) meets on Thursday afternoons in Room 121--across from the library. We are currently reading and discussing this year’s Virginia Reader’s Choice books (in no particular order). We are asking all BOB members to fill out this form for each of the books that they read. Ultimately, the book questions that they generate will be used for practice rounds of our competition. To find out more about this club, please visit the Battle of the Books Website.
