Mrs. Myers shared a teched out library orientation with Mrs. Monosso’s Freshman Academy Social Studies class. Students got our of their seats working in groups to complete a library scavenger hunt. Student learning was assessed using a Kahoot online quiz tool in which students competed to “win” with the most correct answers. Students said that the orientation was “fun” and were engaged in these active learning opportunities.
Mrs. Layne worked with Mrs. Jamison’s classes on being responsible researchers – citing not only DISCUS but also how/why a student should cite photos and clip art. This is part of a collaboration where students will research a superhero – gathering a biography, photo of the superhero, and any special gear. The superhero information will be posted on the Literopolis (an area outside of Jamison’s room will be turned into a superhero museum!). Later, the students will compare recent superheroes with literary heroes like Beowulf.
