Teachers are encouraged to visit the LMC while planing lessons. My preference is to help you plan your assignments from the ground up, but I am happy to help you tweak an existing one. The calendar is very busy, so please schedule your LMC visits at least two days in advance. We've made one slight modification to the process this year: we've replaced the password protection on the sign-up page with having you sign into your google account. Otherwise the process is nearly the same. Requests made via the online form get first priority. Once received, we will manually input your classes and send you a confirmation email.
Our calendar can look a bit overwhelming, but there is a key to the symbols at the top. A typical calendar entry includes the period(s), teacher’s Name, and the # of students in that period. (eg A1/2 Smith 20).
Of course, call or e-mail me for any help.
Lancer LINKs is the library's interactive student newsletter. Please check it out and spread the word!
Interested in making a publication like this? I used LucidPress. It works with Google and on Chromebooks.
Hello from the Media Center. I hope everyone was recharged over the summer and is ready for the school year! To our new faculty, we are happy to have you join the Lancer family. If there is anything the library can do to help ease your transition, just let us know. As always, we are at your disposal to help you plan a lesson, select library resources to support a lesson, or find ways to integrate technology into your instruction.
I look forward to working on our annual reading promotions for Banned Books Week, Halloween, Teen Read Week, Black History Month, and National Poetry Month.
Other plans for this year include a permanant Maker Space, presenting at the CASL/CECA conference in October, and attending Book Expo America in late spring.
It's going to be a great year!
