Welcome to the BRMS Library Media Center
Ms. Davis - Librarian
Check out some of our library activities:
Research Units: So far in 6th and 7th grades, students have been creating Works Cited Pages in Google Dogs using Easybib.com in MLA 8 format. Additionally, students are taking digital notes in Google Keep, practicing the 7 X 7 rule (no more than 7 bullets and 7 words per bullet). 7th and 8th graders are beginning to create in-text citations using MLA guidelines. Students learn how to use keywords for searching, and how to identify reliable sources. Direct instruction takes place in a co-teaching model, specifically in 6th grade Health classes, 7th grade Social Studies classes, and 8th grade Language Arts classes. For more information, go to Research Guidelines.
Book Fair: The BRMS community really came through this fall. We broke a sales record at our Wild Wild West Book Fair. We exceeded our goal by over $1,000. As promised, Mr. Sprague dressed up as a cowboy. Thank you for supporting this important library fundraiser.
Battle of the Books: Our first meeting was Thursday, October 5, 2017 during lunch. Students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades are busy reading from a list of fifteen books, and are making practice cards. The goal is to remember as much detail as possible to succeed at the competition.
Book Trading: This is an ongoing swapping area where students may trade books.
