First book order of the new school year
- Dr. Egemonye's 8th grade social studies classes came to the library and researched diseases that wiped out Native Americans in South Carolina using this Native Americans LiveBinder.
- Both 7th grade social studies classes used this Scientific Revolution LiveBinder to research famous people from the Scientific Revolution.
- Both 6th grade social studies classes used this Irrigation LiveBinder to compare ancient irrigation systems to modern irrigation systems.
All three LiveBinders gave students access to reliable, multimedia resources that they used to obtain information about grade level standards.

Battle of the Books Kick Off
Mrs. Gossett's students took a Socratic Seminar online using Edmodo. Students created posts in response to Mrs. Gossett's questions about the story they were studying in class. After they created their own posts, they took time to read and respond to other students' posts. Students commented that they loved this format because they could all be "responding" at the same time instead of having to wait their turn in a physical discussion. Even the self-proclaimed shy kids agreed that this format helped them be more outgoing in their posts and responses.
