Mrs. Bardi's Virtual Library
Stop in and see the new Media Center glass cabinets that were decorated for the winter holidays. February is celebrated by learning about famous people whose birthdays occur during this month. February is also Black History Month and you will find many famous people who are being honored. Traveling to different parts of the world are fascinating to learn about the history, culture, and people of the country. This month, we are continuing to visit countries in Europe and Asia. We are still in the winter season, and discovering how the Media Center is transforming into a makerspace.

Picturing America PostersI am privileged to have been awarded a series of 40 laminated, double-sided posters through a grant provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities to teach American History. It is a program to develop art appreciation through the use of these posters in the classroom. All areas of art are represented including painting, sculpture, architecture, and photography. They are to be displayed in classrooms, offices, display cases, and the Media Center. Teachers in all subject areas may incorporate these posters into their lessons in any way possible. In addition to the posters, I have a book which includes suggested lessons. Please come to the Media Center to determine which poster might by suitable for a lesson in your classroom.
