SCHOOL: Cherry Creek High School
REFLECTION OF LEARNING: In addition to our co-hort meetings, I attended both the Colorado Teen Literature conference and the 2014 Teacher Librarian Day. I am including reflections of each.

Final Reflection

1. I have wanted to expand a unit of study one of our sociology classes does on genocide by incorporating more of our eBook collection and implementing a book study where students read a biography, memoir, or historical fiction book from the genocide they research and study.
2. To create better readers, students need to be exposed to more choice reading. This is the second year for us to produce a Reading for Enjoyment summer reading list (as opposed to our English department's required reading list). I tried to include a wide variety of both fiction and nonfiction books across genres and reading levels where every type of reader at CCHS could find an enjoyable read.
3. We have been focusing on finding accessible text and audio materials for our English Language Learners. More of our ELL's are in College Prep English than in years before. Our teachers have requested help with locating and acquiring these materials. Due to a small grant from our District Library, we were able to purchase some of the required reading materials for CP English 9th, 10th, and 11th. We just recently discovered Lectorum, a vendor with a great collection of Spanish language materials.
