We believe that the Library Learning Commons is the central hub for learning at our school. It is a full-service learning center where students and teachers meet and gather to do research, collaborate, use technology resources and create. The Learning Commons offers multiple services to the students and staff at Cider Mill School. Digital resources and online databases mean students have greater access to information. A recording studio offers students and staff the ability to videotape and voice record their thoughts or as a final presentation tool. The space itself is furnished and set up to provide a great deal of flexibility for students and staff to collaborate, create and work on projects in groups of all sizes. Tech support for students and staff is also available in the Learning Commons and having the Innovation space nearby gives students easy access to opportunities and materials to showcase their learning.
We incorporate our 5 strands of the LLC curriculum on a continual basis through direct instruction or in collaboration with other teachers:
- Research and Inquiry
- Digital Citizenship
- Literature Appreciation
- Tech Operations
- Collaboration, Communication and Innovation
It is our vision to provide the resources and space for students and staff to enjoy the learning process and instill a love of learning that reaches beyond the normal hours and the four walls of the school.
yours in reading and learning,
Sara Sved & Jason Greasley
