MLA8 Means Changes...Are Coming! Lifelong Learning Skills for High School Students

Written by Emily Rozmus on Friday, 07 October 2016. Posted in Posts

In Spring of 2016, MLA (Modern Language Asscoiation) published their 8th version of MLA style - an update that addresses documenting sources in the digital era. Rather than ask for the version of the source of the publication's format, MLA8 addresses the practical likelihood that most formats are combined - a poem or song online could have com from a print book or an album cover. Therefore, the indication of whether the source is print or web-based has been deleted in MLA8.

Dear Teachers,

It’s August – let’s do this!

Keep Learning All Summer Long

Written by Erica Clay on Thursday, 30 June 2016. Posted in Posts

According to Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Research Services, "Summer vacation is one of the predominant causes of the achievement gap in America's schools. While middle- and higher-income children spend their summers engaged in activities and enrolled in programs that strengthen and reinforce learning, the vast majority of children in low-income communities have little or no access to such opportunities. By the time school begins each year, low-income children's lack of access to enriching summer activities results in their falling weeks, if not months, behind their more advantaged peers."
