The Marley Glen School Library Media Center
The mission of Digital Media and Learning Services is to develop students who are lifelong readers and effective users of technology and information. We do this by teaching critical thinking, research skills and ensuring access to information resources and literature. Our curriculum is adapted from the AACPS Library Media Curriculum. Media classes at Marley Glen serve students from preschool through age 21. Children may find self-expression non-verbally and unlock their imaginations in Media. It is often in these classes that students can excel when they find difficulty in other areas. The Media Center also works with classroom teachers to support goals in speech, reading, behavior and social goals.
News To You!
Students will be kept up-to-date on major news events by being introduced to News-2-You, a weekly online newspaper for beginning readers and individuals with special needs. There are several extension activities that will be used with the SmartBoard, as well as a take home activity.
