• Abbotts Hill's Learning Commons STRIVES.....

    To instill a love of reading in all students
    Reading should be on each student’s personal list of things they enjoy doing in their free time

    To encourage and support each student’s self-directed quest for knowledge
    Students will become confident in their ability to access information in print and electronic form

    To provide opportunities for each student to use technology to acquire knowledge and share their learning in a meaningful and authentic way
    Students will become skillful at using websites and apps that allow them to develop and showcase their learning

    All activities within the Learning Commons will be designed to foster and develop the 4 Cs:

    • Communication
    • Collaboration
    • Critical Thinking
    • Community

    All activities within the Learning Commons will address at least one of the American Association of School Librarians Standards Categories which state that learners will use skills and resources to:

    • Inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge
    • Draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge
    • Share knowledge and participate ethically and productively as members of our democratic society
    • Pursue personal and aesthetic growth
