Learning Commons Philosophy

The Learning Commons Staff at Argyle Elementary School is committed to supporting the curriculum of the school by maintaining a dynamic, student-centered library media program that is based on the ideas of collaboration, leadership, and technology. We believe that the successful implementation of these ideas is essential to helping students develop into lifelong learners who are information literate, independent learners, and socially responsible users of information. The media center staff is dedicated to collaborating with teachers to develop lessons and activities that will provide students with opportunities to use strategies that will help them become effective evaluators and users of information. We hope that our students will take the strategies that they learn beyond the classroom, applying them to their everyday lives so that they will truly be critical thinkers and more creative problem solvers.
