8th Grade Activism Takes Off!
Knowing that Ms. Becker had recently proposed an activism project to her students, I approached her and shared the ideas I had heard with her. The result has been a collaboration including research and technology use. Students have had three ruMAD (are you Making A Difference) sessions in the library where they have access to both print and digital resources for their research as well as support using various presentation technologies. We are looking forward to some exciting presentations in June!
Later in March I attended What's New in Young Adult Literature featuring speaker and author Kathleen Odean, which was hosted by BOCES at the Broome County Public Library. Kathleen is a professional reviewer and an avid reader. Throughout her day of book talks she also includes ideas for incorporating technology into ELA classes. This annual workshop is absolutely essential in helping me decide how to spend our library budget.
