Mrs. Theresa Petrov and Ms. Janet Seabold presented the
updates in the provision of library/media services for the Ridgefield School
District using the new Research Protocol Curriculum. Under this new
curriculum and program, students receive education on information technology
from the library/media specialist in coordination with the classroom
teacher. Students participate in a research project that aligns to the
grade level or subject matter curriculum. The students have received
education on using Google classroom, effective researching, and oral
presentation skills. Each grade level receives the instruction in six
week modules. This schedule provides instruction in library/media services
to all students in grades K – 12.
