December 2014

We had 15 teaching days in the month of December.
We worked with 5 different teachers this month and had 36 classes in the library this month.

Mrs. Berry's English classes came in and worked on writing a persuasive research paper and used EasyBib and research techniques we taught them.

Mr. Knapp's  History classes came in and worked on a "Distribution of Wealth" Project where they researched in databases and websites we provided to them and also cited their sources in EasyBib,

Mrs. Gibson's English classes came in and did a scavenger's hunt using our books and website links to answer questions that related to a novel study of "Fahrenheit 451", which they are currently reading in class.

Deep Run Challenge Club held an Open Mic Night as a fund raiser and had students perform and provided snacks after school in the library. Mrs. Smart and Mrs. Lopez sponsored the event.

Mrs. Latcovish's  Psychology classes finished up their projects "States of Consciousness" this month, sometimes working in the library or in their classroom.
