Media - Mrs. Chris Kaiser
Welcome to Media! This is my twenty-ninth year at St. Vincent's and my eighth teaching media/HAL Literature. Prior to my present teaching assignment, I taught music and worked with school liturgy. I have a BFAE from Wayne State College and a masters in Educational Media and Technology from the University of Nebraska-Kearney.
Students in grades K-3 visit the Reading Lab weekly. Grades 4-6 use the Media Center weekly. Grades 7 and 8 have Media one semester opposite Computers and may check out materials throughout the year. Preschoolers meet bi-weekly in their classroom. SVdP media classes focus on informational literacy (how to find and evaulate information), STEM projects, and building lifelong reading habits.
HAL Literature Grade 5 will read Bridge to Terabithia, Loot, Beetle Boy, The Phantom Tollbooth, The Watson's Go to Birmingham, The Crossover, selected non-fiction and poetry, as well as several self-selected novels. Instruction will focus on literary analysis, writing in a variety of formats, self-management of long-term projects, writing well-structured paragraphs, and participating actively in group discussion.
HAL Literature Grade 6 will continue growth in those skills, as well as expanding their writing to include five-paragraph essays. They will read Where the Red Fern Grows, Book Scavenger, Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry, A Wrinkle in Time, Fever 1793, The Girl Who Drank the Moon, and selected non-fiction and poetry, as well as several self-chosen novels.
