Library class meets once a week for two
trimesters in 5th and 6th grade. The program is designed to develop and expand
student reading interests and to strengthen student research skills.
Whereas in 5th and 6th grade, library
occurs as a separate class, 7th and 8th grades integrate
library skills into their core academic classes.
Within the context of a research project, students learn how
to take notes, outline, develop an argument, and cite print and online sources.
