Ms. Schiulaz's Photography II class took a field trip to the Mepham High School Library today in honor of #bookfacefriday (yay for cross-curricular teaching!). Her lesson on perspective aligned perfectly with our #bookfacefriday competition. Here are some of the results. Choose your favorite one below.
The Voice Poetry Slam Competition will take place Monday, May 18th during periods 8 and 9 in the auditorium. Share your love of the spoken word!
Round 1: Blind Live Auditions - Students will recite their original poem for the judges/coaches during the Blind Live Auditions and they will turn around to choose competitors to be on their teams. Each participant will be placed on a team.
Round 2: Battle Round - Students will form teams, led by each judge. As a team, the students and judge will review the second (themed) poem - "The Letter Never Delivered" - submitted by each student and choose one team member to represent the team with their themed poem. The representatives from each team will “battle” by reciting their themed poems to see who is the best slam poet.
*Students in audience vote at the end. Winners will be chosen based on audience voting. Update: Photos below from the event.
Inspired by this weekend's New York Times article entitled, Oh, Those Clever Librarians and Their #Bookface, we have created our own #bookfacefriday photo competition. The rules are simple, just take your own photo and post it to Twitter on Friday. Then make sure to tag it #bookfacefriday and @MephamHS. We will then repost the photos to Mepham's Twitter account. Be clever and have fun!
Just like our Website and Twitter, this is a place to showcase information about upcoming events, resources, authors, research, and the Internet. As always, I look forward to seeing you in the library and sharing your ideas.
