From Karla:

Some of you may have already encountered this question at the desk, and I apologize for not alerting everyone quicker. I knew about this assignment on Friday and forgot to send it out.

Students may come to the desk asking where the Elementary Science and Social Studies textbooks are located--most of them will be in Instructional Materials (LB1584 or LB1585 or inbetween those call numbers) The books are actually easy to spot once you get in that section. We have new, current materials in both of these subject areas.

In the assignment, students are asked to photocopy or scan one page from a Science or Social Studies text. The professor does not want the students to check the books out. That's all they have to do! :-)

When they get to class they will be entering text from the page they scanned or copied into a free software program that will adapt the text for learners who have special needs, and then they will do some additional activities with the text!

;-) Karla

P.S. The science and social studies texts may be laying on carts around the library as students use the materials!

Soup's On!
Today's Soup Day!  Come by for some delicious soup and other goodies today.  There's plenty to share.

Today's joke - this one has been around for awhile but it still makes me snort:

A teacher was having trouble teaching arithmetic to one little boy, so she asked, "If you reached in your right pocket and found a nickel, and you reached in your left pocket and found another one, what would you have?"
The little boy answered, "Somebody else's pants."
