November 2014 Monthly Report

WHHS Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Wade Hampton High School Library is to ensure that students and staff develop critical thinking skills, are effective and ethical users of resources, ideas, and information, and are enthusiastic readers and lifelong learners.

November in the WHHS Library

We had a fun and busy month in the library! We had classes booked in the library 43 out of 64 periods in November. Some of the projects going on were:

  • Mrs. Mitchell/Mr. Stockwell - "If Walls Could Talk" research project
  • Mrs. Rexroad - Library Orientation
  • Mr. Lemere/Mrs. Alewine - Rationalism, Romanticism, and Dark/Gothic Romanticism research
  • Mr. McAnally - World War II research
  • Mrs. Atkins - Restoration period research
  • Mrs. Atkins - Harlem Renaissance research
  • Mrs. Brooks - British Literature research
  • Mrs. Johnson - Hot Topics research
  • And several class visits for book check-out

For many of these research projects Mrs. Fansher taught students how to:

  • Create accounts in Easybib, create new projects, share their project with their teacher, cite sources, create digital note cards, research popular resources, and more!
  • Use databases in DISCUS to locate articles, primary sources, and ebooks
  • Search for Internet sources using Internet Indexes and how to evaluate those sources

Mrs. Fansher can also create project guides for your classes in Libguides . See her to sign your class up for your next project!
