Learning to categorize and sort objects and ideas is a key component to helping primary age students find and use materials in their library. When teaching students in grades 2-3 the Dewey Decimal System, consider this lesson which asks them to categorize recognizable objects into groups based on shared traits. Using concrete objects will help you bridge learning so that the more abstract concept of grouping books by similar topics is attainable for these learners. This lesson uses content from INFOhio's Educator Tools and ISearch.

From Debbie Levy: "Today, Jo Ann will be the first to remind you that she is just one of twelve black students who went through the agonizing experience of desegregating Clinton High School.  She'll make sure you know that because of her parents' decision to leave, she spent only one semester there.  The heroes, she'll say, are Bobby Cain and Gail Ann Epps - the ones who hung in there long enough to graduate despite the danger and discomfort of showing up, day after day, to a place where they knew they were not wanted. I say they are all heroes."
