To start off I had four students hold up signs (Google, Discus, Library, or Ask a Friend) and stand in a different corner of the room . Then I asked the rest of the class to go stand next to the sign that best represented their own initial search strategy when conducting research. Cathy blogged about the class visit and here are the collaged group shots she took of the class in action:
Notice that Google and Discus changed in size in the After shot (except the one student who switched from Discus to Google - I must not have convinced him!).
The remainder of the day was filled with readers advisory, students signing up for the BYOB Lunchtime Book Club, completing a resource list for Mrs. Campbell's SAT class, and ideas for future collaboration projects. Once again, I left Dorman with my head buzzing with ideas and projects and excitement in knowing that this internship is preparing for my future position as a School Library Media Specialist.
