Library / Media Lab
The old yellow journalism adage, “Inquiring minds want to know,”actually has more than a kernel of truth to it. Both experience and research tell us that students engaged in inquiry are more motivated to pursue learning on their own than students who are fed pre-organized information that they are expected to remember. Inquiry lies at the heart of the new standards issued in 2007 by the American Association of School Librarians, entitled Standards for the 21st-Century Learner. To understand and implement the new standards, library media specialists need to have a clear conception of “inquiry” and its implications for teaching and learning through the library media center.
The library is in rooms 232-238 on the second floor, directly above the main office
