Hey! I'm Robin Rhodes, school librarian at West Wilkes High, home of the Blackhawks, and one of the best high schools in the U.S. I love to help with research assistance, technology tools, reading resources, and other important stuff to help my students and staff. I also love to brag on these wonderful folks, so be sure to visit the "Student Work" pages to see some of the terrific work they do.
Our high school has fully embraced the SMART Lunch model, and students love it. I am trying out some new ideas in the media center. Each day will be a special activity. Mondays are DEAR- Drop Everything And Read. Tuesdays and Thursdays are Student Project Days when students can come in and work on 3D Printers, video production including green screen, Web 2.0 tools or arts and crafts in the maker space. Wednesdays are Game Day- chess and board games only. Fridays are Book Club Day. I will keep you posted on how things grow!
Student overheard talking to friends walking out of the media center during afternoon break, "Since when did the library get to be the coolest place in school?".
Talk to me!
