E-Research Plan Portfolio Prepares Students for Dr. King's Class Visit
To prepare students for Superintendent of Schools Dr. Daniel P. King's class visit, Instructor Ms. Linda Moncivais scheduled her Supervision Management dual-credit students for a library orientation on Mrs. Hernandez's e-Research Plan Portfolio. Students learned the difference between open-ended questions versus closed-ended questions, which they were able to implement during their Question & Answer session with Dr. King. Without question, students and staff members present gained insight from his experience as a nationally known educational leader, a 2014 White House Champion of Change. The e-Research Plan Portfolio can be found on our library web page. Click on the following link: e-Research Plan Portfolio.
