In Grade 6, our students participate in a Research Skills course, led by our Library Media Specialist. This quarter-length course enables students to utilize the Library Media Center, computers, school databases and Internet resources to practice skills and habits of research by investigating a topic of their choice. The goal is for students to independently select an appropriate topic, gather resources, judge the quality of websites, and create a product that demonstrates their ability to effectively use digital tools, read and understand both print and digital texts, write with clarity, and design an effective visual presentation. Our middle school students can also participate in Library Media Center activities such as the Library Scavenger Hunt, Poems in Your Pocket and the Book Review Wall of Fame, which encourage them to explore both fiction and non-fiction on a deeper level.
