Welcome to the Library,
a place for reading, learning, thinking & growing!
We are excited to announce that online access to The New York Times is now available to the Marshall community. There is no user registration or log in required. As long as you are in the school building, you have web access to NYTimes.com on any device – computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Teachers, check out The Learning Network link for great ideas for using the NY Times in your class.
Seek the Truth
Let's all pledge to choose reputable sources for our news.
Students and teachers alike can fall into the trap of believing whatever comes over their phones or devices, whether from social media or online sources. Seek the Truth asks us all to be discerning and responsible, to check facts and sources.
The Media Bias Chart (from Ad Fontes Media - link above) has some information to help with that.
Seek the Truth pledges (and prizes) will be available in the Library soon!
Haiku inspired by Poe from Ms. Crumrine's classes
"The Fall of the House of Usher" "The Premature Burial"
Heart is beating fast Stuck beneath the ground,
Is this going to last? The wave of terror washed over me
Fear comes from my past. ~Cole Sweet release of death. ~Tommy
Crawling at you now Look deep down and see
Shading its terrified eyes. A person who has no soul,
No more sleep tonight ~Zoe Well not anymore. ~Diana
"The Masque of the Red Death" "The Casque of Amontillado"
The mask of the night, Chains that hold us down
People start to run in fright While darkness always surrounds
Didn’t want to fight ~DeAngelo He just keeps us bound ~Jaiden
"A Descent into the Maelstrom" Edgar Allen Poe stamp
What’s in this darkness? Edgar Allen Poe
Is it my own fear or yours? Serious, solemn, somber
Come down and find out. ~Breonna Needs enlightenment ~Daniel
