2nd Quarter Highlights
Our students are researching some fascinating topics! Librarians curated the best resources and taught skills necessary for students to be successful with papers and projects in a wide range of subjects. Classes during the 2nd Quarter researched topics such as: the periodic table of the elements (entire Science 8 team), the salons of the Renaissance period (World History II), political parties and presidential scandals (Honors Gov't), persuasive topics (English 8), global issues (English 10 team), biographies of famous scientists and historical figures (English 7), and agricultural issues in Spanish-speaking countries (Spanish). Librarians assessed information literacy skills of English students in grades 7 and 9, and taught related skills, such as Website Evaluation, and Boolean Operators for online searching. Students researched the historical context of several novels: Secret Life of Bees (English 9), Of Mice and Men (English 9), and the Great Gatsy (English 11). We also worked with Latin, Film Studies, Diploma Candidates, and ESOL Level 3's researching their Global Awareness & Technology Project.
