Extra, Extra – Read All About It!

Students approached Middle School English Language and Literature Teacher Katie Rogers with an idea to create a new addition to the Middle School club's roster – the Newspaper Club! The club has been gaining momentum throughout the fall, with students and staff eager to read each new issue of ISB’s first completely student-run newspaper, the ISB Times. With a team spirit and a collaborative mindset, students have been reporting, interviewing, and researching on a wide range of topics for each issue published. “We are here to educate, spread the word on different topics, and have fun,” shares Club Co-leader Valentina. “We take suggestions and ideas because we are a community that's here to help and have fun. We add different columns, and let people write about a vast amount of different topics they want to write about, while still keeping journalistic integrity.”

What to Read Aloud to Your Middle Schooler

One of my favorite activities in the winter months is curling up under a blanket and reading with my kids. But the past couple years, I found myself reading less with my oldest child who is now in 6th Grade. At first, I celebrated this independence; I was proud, seeing the familiar pull of literature’s tug take hold. Soon he was devouring an entire series, and now he’s in the thrall of The Keeper of Lost Cities—another epic tale currently running nine volumes. Sometimes he asks me to read to him, but it’s hard to truly enjoy these books when I’m joining him seven volumes in and unfamiliar with the characters and the plot twists. I miss the excitement of reading something new and really good together.

Dr. Debbie Reese Discusses Misrepresentation of Native Americans in Literature with the 8th Graders

Throughout the year in their Individuals and Societies class, 8th Graders are examining the history of the United States from the "discovery" of America by Christopher Colombus through the Civil Rights Movement. Individuals and Societies Teacher Guillaume Roper-Sirvent and Librarians Maria Falgoust and Eli Hetko invited Dr. Debbie Reese, a scholar, and educator from the Nambé Owingeh nation, to come and speak with the entire 8th Grade to deepen students’ awareness of how Native Americans are way too often not taken into consideration in most historical, as well as fictional, books.
