At Squaw Valley Academy Bay Area, our students enhanced their reading and writing skills at the beautiful Livermore Library. Students worked on a variety of assignments. Ms. George our History teacher, created a personalized scavenger hunt that helped students learn how to properly research and use the different benefits of the library. This assignment encouraged students to speak with librarians and explore all areas of the library. Ms. Cohen our Psychology and English teacher had students choose a book, or article that they were interested in. They then wrote analytical, comparative essays on a section of that book or article. These library assignments were given in addition to their current in class assignments.
Students enjoyed collaborating as a team with other students on their essays and scavenger hunts. Overall, the day was an academically productive experience. Students got to access more educational materials outside of the classroom. Learning how to research effectively in the library also prepares students for the many writing projects, they will experience when they attend their Universities and Colleges. We are very thankful for the encouraging and supportive community of Livermore that Squaw Valley Academy Bay Area is located in.
