What a busy 1st Quarter!
We welcomed all new 7th graders to our library through English classes for orientation; and they all returned again last week to research Ellis Island with their history teachers. We taught 15 classes of 9th grade Biology Honors how to analyze an abstract and choose a science experiment article from a peer-reviewed journal. Many IB classes began to research for their Internal Assessments, including Topics, Religion, Latin, and Drama. We also taught Junior IB Diploma Candidates a lesson on Avoiding Plagiarism and In-Text Citations, in preparation for writing an Extended Essay. Students participating in the Science Fair attended a research workshop in the library.
Thanks to the many teachers who brought down 42 classes to check out books, listen to book talks, get personal recommendations for reading, and take advantage of our collection. Thank you, Mr. Walker, Mr. Barker, Ms. Anderson, Ms. Karr, Ms. Mosteller, Ms. Sibley, Mr. Kelly, Ms. Reakes-Smith, Dr. Frenck, Ms. Gray, Ms. Baxter, and Mr. Hewan, and Ms. Lopatin. Total Checkouts: September: 3274; October: 2796.
