The Library’s Final Four

We decided to do a “March Madness” book tournament at my school, basing our “Sweet Sixteen” on the top circulating books for the calendar year, February 2012 – February 2013.  The idea was shared from a neighboring library school intern at Spartanburg High.  We picked it up and ran with it, modifying it only slightly!

In mid April one of my English teachers had her AP Lit students create propaganda pieces as a component of the novel study of George Orwell’s 1984. I blogged about it here.  First impressions can be so deceiving, as though I came to the class to see them and even agreed to display them in […]

Today our library participated in a South Carolina Association of School Librarians’ Snapshot Day.  This is an effort to capture the essence of what happens in a library on a single day.  Here are the numbers we crunched, but this does not show everything.  I spent time visiting two classes today to introduce and go […]
