Makerspace Activity: Students are making good use of the makerspace for a variety of projects. In American Studies, students are designing brochures depicting the Founding Father's viewpoints on issues that confronted them, such as voting rights. Other students in Global II are using the makerspace to depict the many faces of absolutism.
Intern Visit: An intern from the state of Connecticut Alternate Route to Certification (ARC) program for library media specialists spent a day shadowing us. The intern observed collaboration with social studies teachers on the research process and asked questions about how to facilitate an integrated high school library program that is standards based.
Bibliography Feedback: Librarians are explaining how to drop off bibliographies for feedback, and students are encouraged to take advantage of having the librarians check their bibliographies before submitting them to their teachers. The feedback gives students a chance to revise their work and learn how to cite correctly. Students simply attach a citation checklist and checkbric to their bibliography and drop it off at the library. The checkbric has QR codes explaining the various parts of a citation. Simply take a photo of the QR code to get the citation rules.
