Creating dynamic library media programs at Powell and Reedy Creek Elementary

If you're looking for some great examples of the 4C's at work in the library, take a look at these two feature elementary programs!

Powell Elementary embraced a new magnet theme this year--Play and Ingenuity! We know that their media coordinator, Jessica Gill has enjoyed the challenge of incorporating this theme into the media center. In additional to some fun design ideas (part of the room is a "Collaboratory"--so fitting for the magnet theme!) this video shows students using critical thinking to create and design games in the media center! Can we come play, too?!

Reedy Creek Elementary's library is full of creativity as well! If you attended her poetry session at convergence, you saw first hand that Erin Wasko is a treasure trove of great ideas! This video she shares highlights the fun displays and inquiry-based lessons that Erin leads in her library. We personally would love to hear more about the 5th grade invasive species research--how cool!

Thanks, Erin and Jessica, for all of the hard work you put forth in creating exciting opportunities for students to collaborate, think critically, communicate their ideas, and show off their creativity! We celebrate you and your impact on student learning at your schools!
