4.1 - Managing Information Resources: Selecting, Organizing, Using

March 6, 2012 at Eddy Middle School with Ms. Hagan.  While we were in Destiny, Ms. Hagan printed out a list of fiction books that has not been checked out in the past five years.  Ms. Hagan believes that the media center has not been weeded in many decades.  I could not believe that over 30 pages were printed out.  I know that Ms. Hagan and I were going to try our best but I just don’t think we are going to get all of the books weeded on this day.  Ms. Hagan and I divided the list and got to work.  I am not sure of the exact number of books we removed but it was a lot of them.  And Ms. Hagan was correct; Eddy’s media center had not been weeded in a number of years.  We found books that were originally check out in 1965.

On the Field Experience Assessment, Ms. Jones gave me an 5.

It was important for Ms. Preston to show diversity in her media center because Key Elementary students are 90% African-American.  There is a display by the check desk that list some of the great leaders of the past, present, and maybe the future.

4.2 - Managing Program Resources: Human, Financial, Physical

The day I worked at Eddy Middle School , the media center was closed to students because the school was a voting site.  Still, Ms. Hagan went over her policies with me and gave me some examples.  It also should be noted that this is Ms. Hagan’s first year at Eddy Middle School.  I quickly asked Ms. Hagan if I should reschedule and come back later in the week. Ms. Hagan didn’t think that I should not reschedule because this is part of working in the media center.

4.3 - Comprehensive and Collaborative Strategic Planning and Assessment

Between the hours of 11:30a.m. and 1:00 pm. Ms. Montarella explain in great detail what AR mean and how she uses it in her media center.  Also during this time I checked in books, shelved books, and directed students to their appropriate AR book selection. The students that came in the media center during this time were upper class men.The only time I had to give the “teacher’s voice” is when a student was giving me a hard to because they could not check out a book.The student didn’t have their card and they had an overdue look, so the policy states that they cannot check out another book.

EDUT 6117 - Standard 1.4

1.4 - Stimulating Learning Environment

Ms. Moss on March 5, 2012 gave me the the task of setting the parental control on e-readers that will be given to students who wanted to join the Northside High Book Club.

On this day, I had to load the books and but a password on the WiFi feature.  Students won't be allow to download books nor have the option to get on the Web.

One positive display in the media center was th celebration of Dr. Seuss birthday.  The display maintain a positive educational environment that promoted reading.  In order to get a prize, a student had to solve a Dr. Seuss problem that required research.  This is an excellent technique that incorporates technology and reading.

EDUT 6115 - Standard 2.1

Before a book is placed on the shelf, the media specialist looks up the AR Level and the Quiz number.  During my field experiences at Key Elementary, I had to look up the AR information.  The media specialist must ensure that the student is given the correct curriculum level, so they become academically success.

2.1 - Knowledge of Learners and Learning

On March 7, 2012 at Gentian Elementary School with Ms. Montarella.  Between 9:15 though 11:30, I conducted preview of the book fair with 5 classes, ranging from grades Pre-K to 3rd grades. It was my job to explain to the students doing the preview, what items that will be available for purchase.I start by asking the students to hug themselves or put their hands behind their backs.I knew once the students saw all of the “cool” items it will be hard for them to resist touching the merchandise.Each class was allotted 20 minutes and the classes came every 10 minutes.The only time I have to stop the tour is when some of the girls saw the Justin Bieber posters.Which I can totally understand, I can remember being a young girl loving New Kids on the Block and wanting to buy any and all of their posters.
