The Hillsboro-Deering Elementary School Media Center will support cross-disciplinary and inquiry-based learning methods and foster the development of critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration by creating new programming and student-friendly learning zones. The library media specialist conducted a survey earlier this year of library stakeholders. This project addresses needs identified by the community as well as builds on existing momentum from the introduction of a makerspace cart and the development of a STEAM summer learning camp. The media center will invest in the Engineering is Elementary Curriculum and material kits designed by the Boston Museum of Science to further support inquiry-based learning. The library media specialist will partner with an academic support specialist, classroom teachers, and the director of the afterschool program to create a cross-disciplinary school library program.
