MS Faculty - How Can I Help?: Home

Mrs. Myles is here to help you! Take a look at the different ways I can assist.

 The best part of my job is collaborative lessons and visits to classes to help with instruction. 

 I want to work with you and your students – we can work together for student learning gains!

 Library lessons can be professional development for you and me. I demonstrate tools and strategies that can expand your repertoire and I welcome your input and your active participation to learn more about your subject and what you do in the classroom.


Plan Together

When you begin thinking about a project/unit/module, I can scaffold relevant and pertinent information literacy instruction. It is my job to show students how to research, evaluate sources, and make citations. 

Search for books

Many teachers don't realize we have many professional books and popular books for grown-ups. Click below to search the catalog.

Suggestions? Wants?

 

Have a book, database, or other resources that you would like to use in your instruction? Send your recommendation my way!

Library Space

If you want to use any spaces in the library or send small groups to complete a specific task, find books, or read please contact me

Libguides

I can create a libguide for any research, unit, or class project. Here are a few examples of some collaborative libguides I've created with MS teachers:


6th Grade English Iqbal: Book study and project on global issues


7th Grade PIE Project


8th Grade Physics and Engineering: Robots and Bridges

Most used databases in MS

SIFT Source Evaluation

In 5th and 6th-grade library classes, I teach kids the SIFT Method for evaluating their research for validity and reliability. I am happy to visit classes during research sessions to remind them how to use this. Click the icon to learn more. 

New Adult and Professional Books

Behind Their Screens

What are teens actually doing on their smartphones? Contrary to many adults' assumptions, they are not simply "addicted" to their screens, oblivious to the afterlife of what they post, or missing out on personal connection. They are just trying to navigate a networked world. In Behind Their Screens, Emily Weinstein and Carrie James, Harvard researchers who are experts on teens and technology, explore the complexities that teens face in their digital lives, and suggest that many adult efforts to help-"Get off your phone!" "Just don't sext!"-fall short.

Lucy by the Sea

As a panicked world goes into lockdown, Lucy Barton is uprooted from her life in Manhattan and bundled away to a small town in Maine by her ex-husband and on-again, off-again friend, William. For the next several months, it's just Lucy, William, and their complex past together in a little house nestled against the moody, swirling sea. Rich with empathy and emotion, Lucy by the Sea vividly captures the fear and struggles that come with isolation, as well as the hope, peace, and possibilities that those long, quiet days can inspire. 

Demon Copperhead

Set in the mountains of southern Appalachia, Demon Copperhead is the story of a boy born to a teenaged single mother in a single-wide trailer, with no assets beyond his dead father's good looks and copper-colored hair, a caustic wit, and a fierce talent for survival. Relayed in his own unsparing voice, Demon braves the modern perils of foster care, child labor, derelict schools, athletic success, addiction, disastrous loves, and crushing losses. Through all of it, he reckons with his own invisibility in a popular culture where even the superheroes have abandoned rural people in favor of cities. .
