November 2011 Roots Music Club @ The Unquiet Library

Inspired by the Beatles’ performance on Ed Sullivan, Roots Music Club special guest Lawson Hunt knew from an early age that he would be a musician. Lawson started his first band in 9th  grade, practicing in a chicken house behind his parents’ home. Lawson played keyboards and sang backing vocals on tour in the 70s and 80s with David Allan Coe, George Jones, and Willie Nelson.

Bluegrass and Banjo: Roots Music Club Meeting @ The Unquiet Library!

The Unquiet Library was proud to host the very first meeting of the Roots Music Club sponsored by English teacher Drew Lawson on Wednesday, September 14.  Speaker and special guest Jody Hughes is 2006 Merlefest Banjo Competition winner and member of local bluegrass band WhitePath.  Approximately 30+ students and teachers came with their own instruments to learn the art of the banjo from Jody and to jam out.  We hope you enjoy our photos and video from yesterday’s outstanding event–thank you Roots Music Club for an afternoon of music, learning, and fun!

A Conversation for Learning: Media 21 Students Share Their Search Stories and Strategies

Seeing students utilize the information literacy skills you’ve previously taught them in a new context and independently without it being a mandate is probably one of the most joyful experiences as a librarian and teacher.  Take a look at how one of our inquiry groups is growing as budding researchers and demonstrating these skills, dispositions, responsibilities, and self-assessment strategies from the AASL Standards for 21st Century Learners:

  • 1.1.8 Demonstrate mastery of technology tools for accessing information and pursuing inquiry.
  • 1.2.1 Display initiative and engagement by posing questions and investigating the answers beyond the collection of superficial facts.
  • 1.1.9 Collaborate with others to broaden and deepen understanding.
  • 1.2.2 Demonstrate confidence and self-direction by making independent choices in the selection of resources and information.
  • 1.2.7 Display persistence by continuing to pursue information to gain a broad perspective.
  • 1.4.1 Monitor own information-seeking processes for effectiveness and progress, and adapt as necessary.
  • 1.4.2 Use interaction with and feedback from teachers and peers to guide own inquiry process.
  • 3.2.3 Demonstrate teamwork by working productively with others.
