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.
From August 20th-22nd, the library staff assisted with the MacBook Air rollout for the 10-12 students. While Mrs. Webb handed out protective bags next door, Mrs. Myers and Layne worked with classes (two every period!) to remind students how to log into the MacAir and to make sure students could get into the email app.
