Media - Mrs. Chris Kaiser

Welcome to Media! This is my thirtieth year at St. Vincent's and my ninth 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.

Class Info
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, The Mona Lisa Vanishes, Fever 1793, The Girl Who Drank the Moon, and selected non-fiction and poetry, as well as several self-chosen novels.
