Learning Commons

LEARNING COMMONS


In order to adhere to guidelines around the quarantining of books, the Learning Commons will be closed to student visits for the time being. Instead, materials may be requested utilizing an online ordering process. Students in Option 1 will have Learning Commons materials delivered to their team area. Students in Option 2 can work with Learning Commons staff to coordinate pickup of materials. As restrictions are eased, students will be able to access the Learning Commons, as outlined below. Notice will be given when this becomes available. Please contact the school with any questions.

SERVICES

The centrally located Learning Commons—located at the top of the stairs above the main office—is the hub for learning and technology at Mt. Ararat Middle School. At MAMS, our Learning Commons team supports important 21st Century skills: collaboration, critical thinking, global citizenship, communication, and creativity. We offer:


  • An extensive library collection of books, databases, and digital materials. If we don’t have the item you need, we can usually borrow it for you through our inter-library loan program in conjunction with the Topsham Public Library.
  • Technology Support. Come see us first if you are having trouble with your device, experiencing difficulty logging in or are unable to print.
  • The Learning Commons exploratory course for all 6th and 7th grade students, where students learn about digital literacy, research skills, and the library.
  • A quiet space to read.
  • A space to work on projects (individual and group).
  • A place to record audio and video projects.
  • Professional materials for our faculty and staff.
  • Writing support through the Writing Center, located in the Learning Commons.


The MAMS Learning Commons is a place where everyone is welcome!
