Library Curriculum Overview

 

Library classes provide a dynamic curriculum where students participate in various activities and lessons. Students are exposed to a wide variety of genres, and learn skills to locate and choose a "just right book" with the goal of building an intrinsic love of reading. Students also become skilled critical users of information while learning research skills that support their classroom and personal interests. Technology is imbedded in many of the activities, including lessons on becoming a responsible digital citizen. Grades 3rd through 5th and 6th through 8th students have extracurricular opportunities to participate in the Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) official competition, as well as the intra-school battle and a 5th grade Library Page program.

What inspires you to teach?
My inspiration to teach are those moments when you are learning from your students. When their knowledge is the inspiration of others, you know that you are being heard and that you are in the right place.
