Mr neff's new library blog

Welcome to this Library Media Website

Parents, welcome to my library media blog.  If you’re wondering what happens in the media center?

In this special, we deal with a variety of information, literacy, and technology skills.  During our ILT-based classes, my goal is to provide instruction through the lens of technology, and to prepare our students to be as literate as possible.  Our curriculum is not only based upon state and national technology standards but also based upon a variety of Common Core State Standards.  Our curriculum includes exposure to quality literature, nonfiction, and other print materials. Instruction will integrate district curriculum with information literacy, technology literacy–and additional literacies.  This curriculum is important to the full elementary scope and sequence, and will help prepare our students for success.  Students will search for information, learn various genres, complete online work, and enjoy award-winning books.  Please subscribe to this blog, a blog that links to additional blogs my students use weekly.
