CLARK — Students in Ms. Donaldson’s junior English class at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark recently spent time in the school library media center researching the lives and work of modern American poets. Students were also tasked with exploring the literary criticism published about their poet’s work.
School Library Media Specialist Kate Ryan said, “juniors are accustomed to doing research online, but this kind of advanced research allows us to explore the scholarly databases that the school library offers. These databases collate journal articles from prestigious academic publications and it is a challenge for students to find the kind of literary criticism Ms. Donaldson is looking for.” The final product of this research is a formal essay.
