Visit The Little Library for Project Research

 

As we enter the research phase for IDEAS Project Block, it’s important to use many different types of sources in order to get well rounded research. While many students rely on the Internet as their most important source, we have a library in our school that could assist with many different projects.

The Little Library, located in the office, has a wide selection of books that may provide professional models and insight into your topic. The Little Library holds books about teaching, thinking, world geography, photography, science, dance, Sheboygan and Wisconsin history, children’s books, books of poetry, biographies, and graphic novels. In addition, we have a wide variety of fiction books, ranging from classics to new releases. If your project is about publishing your own work, we have a selection of books published through Étude Studios.

Before deciding that the Internet is the only way to research, pay a visit to the Little Library and see what secrets it holds.

Side note: To check out books from The Little Library, please see the clipboard on the center shelf and fill out the form. Kindly return the book to the return bin promptly when you are finished.

Juniors at IDEAS Academy excitedly hopped onto the bus to visit Lakeland University for the Wisconsin Education Fair on Wednesday, September 28. The students were given a list of the nearly 100 colleges at the Fair and set loose to talk to representatives from and learn about colleges and other post-high school education opportunities in the Midwest area. The Fair helped students move farther along their path to college readiness and career plans. Students with no clue of what the future holds were granted inspiration that drove them to consider things they never had.

IDEAS Reflections from Camp Anokijig

IDEAS Reflections from Camp Anokijig Thumbnail

Greetings from Camp Anokijig! The weather is beautiful, and the students are active. Our intention with starting school off campus was to give the students authentic bonding experiences to carry throughout the year. From the staff point of view, it seems to have been a success. In the morning, students met their peers in advisory and then constructed reflection journals together. These journals will hold their thoughts so that we can look back on our time here, and build upon the lessons we’ve learned.

Everyone who has walked through the halls of IDEAS and Mosaic in recent weeks has noticed a giant peach, the huge copy of Matilda, and a small chocolate factory. These set pieces have had many people wondering how they would be used. That question was answered on Tuesday night when Diane Jones presented her Exhibition of Learning in the John Michael Kohler Art Center Matrix on Tuesday, May 24th.
