Author Visit Alan Gratz visited the BSHS LMC on February 16th. He conducted three sessions for our students: 1) Shakespeare, 2) Creative Writing, and 3) Q&A . Eighty-five students were invited to the sessions and all provided positive feedback about their experience.
Resource Lists Mrs. Bullington created two Resource Lists based on our print collection. Mrs. Cribbs requested a list on diseases. Mrs. Hursey, 9th grade campus media specialist, requested to borrow books on experiences of Holocaust survivors for a class conducting research on the WW II event. We created a Resource List and pulled books for the 9th grade campus to use.
Pathfinders Mrs. Bullington edited the Elizabethan Age Pathfinder to reflect new resources and to provide resources on topics being covered in Mrs. Gray’s class research related to A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Information Literacy Lessons Both Mrs. Hames and Mrs. Gray requested that we provide instruction to their classes beginning research on using the library’s resources. We reviewed using our Destiny catalog, accessing and using SC DISCUS resources, and accessing and using the Pathfinders created specifically for the research being conducted.
Book Trailers On Feb. 24th and 25th, Mr. Campbell conducted sessions on creating book trailers for Mrs. Menzer’s and Ms. London’s English classes. He provided resources to assist the students as they began creating book trailers for class projects.
