January 2014 Report
Patti Bogert, Assistant Library Media Specialist
What's Been Happening?
*As the end of the semester neared, our tables, chairs, outlets and floor spaces were often completely occupied by students finishing projects--the resource center, filled with colored pencils, glue sticks, scissors, paper cutter, etc was well used!
*Senor Henderson and the library staff worked at putting together a Google Site with the 7th grade Espanol students (stay tuned for a link--it's under the editing process right now!).
*Mrs. Savage and Mrs. Miller began integrating literacy into her A Block PE class. Students are making goals and reflecting on their practices, while preparing for a debate on whether students should receive PE credit for Varsity sports.
*Professional Development was offered on Friday the 24th to teachers at the Library Open House. Teachers came in and learned about Turn It In, Twitter as a Teacher Tool, Our Media Lab, and LibGuides.
*Mrs. Miller began visiting Mr. Hayman's Creative Writing Class to do weekly librarian lessons. Lesson 1: Great Beginnings.
*Book talks book talks book talks! English classes filled the schedule to sign up for new independent reads.
*Mr. Quinn's video class took a tour of the media lab and is concocting exciting ways to use it.
