AP History in the Loquacious

Mrs. Clinch brought her classes in for research.  Students are given a topic (blind pull piece of paper) from the 1930s.  Mrs. Myers is doing a quick presentation on using the catalog, DISCUS, and the Library of Congress to find materials on their topics.  This is a good experience for the students as they are learning to work with their keyword search and think outside of the box.  For example, one student had a music related topic and found out that while the history section was good (900 call number area) that the music section (700 area) was better.
