Our very own Mrs. Gwen Cash has been named 2010 Texas Preserve American History Teacher of Year. Books were donated by the Gilder Lebrman Institute of American History in her honor to the library. Congratulations Mrs. Cash! We are so proud of you!!!
Coach Ward's Pre-Ap World History Classes created an interactive poster using Glogster. Their assignment was to create an inter-active movie poster for the book they read this summer. They were given the choice of reading "Pastwatch", by Orson Scott Card, or "Revolution is not a dinner party"' by Ying Chang Compestine. They were told the book was being made into a movie and the were to create a poster for the theatre that centered on one of the key themes or ideas from the book. Some of the presentations were presented in the library.
