21st Century Skills
The sixth, seventh and eighth grade students will be introduced to new challenges on November 25th when the teachers share the Meridian Stories website.http://www.meridianstories.com/
Meridian Stories was created to engage middle and high school students with “. . . the curriculum through competitive / collaborative storytelling that capitalizes on the technological and co-creative tools of this generation’s culture.” The challenges offered will include Language Arts, History, Science, and Mathematics.http://www.meridianstories.com/challenges/
Students will be able to see the challenges that teachers chose to mentor as they visit each classroom on November 25th. They will then complete a sheet listing their choices, 1 – 6. Students will collaborate in groups of 3 - 4 to create a digital product. After Thanksgiving break, students will be able to work on their project at least once a week.
Even though Meridian Stories is located in Maine, other middle and high schools across the United States will be competing. Brent Pierce, the founder of Meridian Stories, created an authentic learning experience. “They (students) are all evaluated by the real world: media and education professionals, including producers, scientists, writers and teachers, providing students with feedback from beyond the classroom walls.” By participating in the challenges students are preparing for future careers that will be available when students are ready to enter the workforce.
Please visit Meridian Stories site to see an example of a full Challenge. Samples of 2012 – 2013 Student Entry Highlight videos are also available to view.

Grade 7 - News
Seventh grade students are exploring Egypt in Social Studies. They are studying hieroglyphics and communication, tombs and afterlife, the pyramids, the great leaders and pharaohs, science and technology, life as an ancient Egyptian and the secrets of a lost empire. Having the laptops this year has really helped bring history alive for the students.
Grade 8 – News
Students completed a major project, Constitution for Immigrants, in Social Studies and will be working on Westward Expansion. After viewing several examples of digital storytelling ELA students are in the process of creating their own digital stories. Students brainstormed ideas, created an outline, storyboard and script prior to creating the video. Looking at camera angles and effects of camera position will help students to create desired emotional effects within their story.
The eighth grade WikiSpace can be located to view Mr. Kidder and Mrs. Voyer’s classes at http://grade8info.wikispaces.com/
All children will become successful life long learners who are responsible, community-oriented citizens.
The vision of the Dr. Lewis S. Libby School is to promote the educational, social, physical and emotional development of our students so that they may function to the best of their individual abilities. This vision can best be reached by fostering responsible community-oriented citizens who demonstrate the following characteristics:
- Caring and Kindness
- Respect for Self and Others
Teachers, administrators, support staff and community need to form a unified partnership to foster growth opportunities for all students to become lifelong learners and responsible, community-oriented citizens. These opportunities must reflect high standards of excellence in a climate that is safe, positive, and community-orientated. These opportunities will also include responsive curriculum that is differentiated, standards-based, challenging, integrative, exploratory and is aligned with the Maine Learning Results.
