– Empowering Learners: Guidelines for School Library Media Programs
The CMS Library Media program supports learning by providing resources, guidance, and instruction that aid in the understanding and exploration of various concepts within a globally contextual framework. These resources help students to answer such questions as:
How can I understand other people in my community and beyond?
How can understanding the “when” and “where” of events help me to understand the world in which I live today?
What are some ways I can express myself, my culture, my ideas and beliefs?
What impact does the natural world have on me? What impact do I have on the natural world?
How do global issues impact me locally?
How does the concepts of peace and conflict relate to those of fairness and sustainability?
Students are encouraged to use the Commons before and after school for research and personal enrichment. Students are also welcome during the instructional day with a pass from their teacher. Lunch passes are available from the Commons staff or from the students’ third block teacher.
