J. P. Starks Elementary Math, Science and Technology Vanguard Librarian Kimberly Wooten devised a learning activity that required learners to evaluate a variety of perspectives and challenged learners to work with others to broaden and deepen understandings. Ms. Wooten facilitated a lesson that gave learners the opportunity to research and compare/contrast different winter holidays. Learners were asked to identify the holiday, who celebrates the holiday, and how the holiday is celebrated. Learners organized the information in a table making it easy to compare/contrast the different winter holidays. AASL Standard: Collaborate.Think
Hillcrest HS librarian Nina Canales employed student volunteers to assist her in weeding the library. Students took ownership of their work of not only weeding books, but identifying gaps in the collection! Students have loved exploring all of the materials and can't wait to get back to work. One student remarked, "I had no idea how much work went into organizing the library!" AASL Standard: Curate.Think
