年代o what were some of these projects? Seventh graders created Slides presentations relating to literary terms, and in another quarter, they created author study projects using Thinglink.

年代ixth graders completed different projects, including a genre project and a book talk Slide. Because 6th graders talk a lot about genre at the start of the school year, it was a natural fit to create a Slides presentation using a book of the student's choice to demonstrate their understanding of genre.

MySimpleShowis a great site featuring templates that students can use to create videos showing their learning. You can read about students' work在这篇博客文章。素养研究students created book trailers using MySimpleShow; below is an example:

Throughout the school year, new books greeted students several times. Of course August brought many new books after summertime ordering, but with books fairs in late October and March, along with holiday-time ordering, students had access to hundreds of new titles. In fact, over the course of the 2018 -2019 school year, more than 775 new books were added to the collection!



And these novels in verse, which grow in popularity every year:

Didn't get a chance to read these? No worries! They'll be waiting for you when school starts--along with more than 100 additional new titles! Your to-be-read list just got longer! :) See you in August!

As a former elementary librarian, I recognized the need for a library orientation activity, especially for our sixth graders, who are new to our building. What better way to get students up and moving around and looking at various sections of the library space than with a physical breakout!


在学年的课程中,学生参加了两个额外的突破 - 与书系列和MG / YA文学和诗歌的突破,这是物理和数字作品组合的完全数字化的突破。18新利在线娱乐手机版

DCGMS图书馆的基本知识: H is for Hyperdoc

The letter H brings you today's ABCs post--H is for Hyperdoc. Another new activity from the Literacy Studies class was an activity in which students used a collaborative Hyperdoc to talk about books.
Image from Pixaby
The Hyperdoc that students used was a book talk/book share document that allowed them to complete a row within the document. Student chose a book, included the book cover along with another image, and then they linked a related website (author site, interview, book trailer, etc.) to one of the images. Finally, students wrote about something they learned from the book. The Hyperdoc appears below, and a copy is accessible by clicking on the link below the image.
