Northern Guilford H.S. Media Center

New Professional Resources

Several professional books made their way to the media center this past week. (Thanks, Mr. Laine.) They now are cataloged and ready for you to check out and use for research, inspiration or plain old problem-solving.

Find books on good teaching, differentiated instruction, project-based learning, the learning brain, discipline, multicultural teaching, rubric construction and more.

Come by and browse your collection in the PRF section. It's all for you!
