Library Media Center

Terryville High School
Library Media Commons

The library learning commons brings together the functions of libraries, labs, lounges, and seminar areas in a single community gathering place. This face-to-face forum supports the sharing of student ideas outside the classroom and complements the shift in pedagogy toward collaborative team efforts.

    2. What did you not connect to, but who might?

    3. Would you recommend this book to a friend and why?

    4. Give a 1-2 sentence summary of the book.


  1. To convey your responses to the above questions, create/produce:

As a bonus, the learning commons can be an ideal venue to blend face-to-face learning  with virtual meetings thus allowing teachers to engage classes in webinars, virtual classroom, small group collaboration, peer evaluation and large group instruction. The library commons is also a place for student to engage in a variety of activities that promote real-world, discovery learning.
