This Week in The Library@HHS January 21-24, 2014



This week in The Library@HHS was short, yet productive.  It was a four day week due to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday plus I was out sick one of those days.  After presenting a Google 101 PD session earlier in the month, Ms. Robertson spent much of her time this week working with teachers one on one or in small groups.  It has been thrilling to see teachers eager to embrace new technologies and step outside of their comfort zones.

Student Library Aides
Student Library Aide is a class just like any other class.  We give graded assignments, midterms and finals. Each of our 21 student aides have been assigned a section of the library. It is their responsibility  to shelve books and maintain the appearance of their section. This week students were given the task to create a display to help promote their particular section of the library.  Students were provided with directions and a grading rubric via our Edmodo Group.  Here are some of the resulting displays that our student library aides created:

We were very proud of our students.  They learned that the great displays around the library aren't that easy to think up and put together.


Community Involvement
We welcomed back the 117th Air Refueling Wing to The Library@HHS this week. The 117th Air Refueling Wing/Hoover High School Mentor Program was developed by Dr. Debbie Grant to meet the needs of those 9th graders who are considered to be high-risk academically, socially and emotionally. The program pairs a mentor with a student and provides the student with a “fresh” adult perspective on their school and home life. The mentors keep in touch with students via email and see them two times each month during their advisory period.  The Library@HHS is proud to provide a place for this program to meet.
