Learning Commons / Library

Auburn Bay School Learning Commons

At our school we do not have a library in the traditional sense but we do have a Learning Commons. The Learning Commons is an inclusive, flexible, learner-centered, space for collaboration, inquiry, imagination and play to expand and deepen learning. The learning commons promotes personalization, inquiry, and the integration of technology through the implementation of innovative curricular design and assessment.   The Learning Commons is print rich and regularly has new resources.   The print resources are intended to support the implementation of innovative curricular design.  Because teachers are the designers of such learning, teachers will access print resources for their students.  Once a teacher borrows a book, they can then decide how students will use the books in the classroom and Learning Commons and if they will permit the books to go home.   The Learning Commons print resources are not intended to be home reading books.  We have created a plan to support home reading and access home reading resources.  This includes: 

  • Accessing Calgary Public Library 
  • Monthly book orders 
  • Book fairs twice a year 
  • Classroom book collections 
  • Online reading resources

RT @UsihChristopher: We work closely with AHS when dealing with positive COVID cases in our schools. Consistent with their direction, “if a student comes to school while infectious with COVID, our current approach is typically to require that all student’s classmates stay home for 14 days.”#WeAreCBE

RT @UsihChristopher: Important: Parents/guardians are required to assess students daily for symptoms of COVID-19 before the start of the school day using the daily screening questionnaire (checklist), available here: https://t.co/8Ma0f3SY62 Anyone who is experiencing symptoms cannot enter a school. https://t.co/YLWf6mf1iz

RT @YourAlberta: To help keep students and school staff safe, public health measures include a screening questionnaire. Parents should go through this questionnaire every morning before class to determine if the child can go to school or needs to stay home: https://t.co/VqOYyq0f04 https://t.co/0WLbkygPOu

RT @yyCBEdu: Students registered for hub online will receive an email by end of day Wednesday with a teacher introduction, info about how and where to log in and more. Check https://t.co/ee2XFbs1qB for more details. #cbehub #yycbe https://t.co/7MiZG7UAE0
