MIDDLE SCHOOL COURSES

Library and Technology 7

This class develops students’ research abilities and media literacy, emphasizing ethical digital citizenship and transferable skills needed to navigate ever‑changing technology. Students consume, create, curate, collaborate, and communicate online to develop skills necessary for success at Harvard-Westlake, college, and beyond. Students learn how to acquire, organize, and store information; evaluate legitimacy and usefulness of sources; and exercise responsibility—by crediting information with informal attributions and formal citations—while taking part in the ongoing conversation that is research. Students learn through real‑world projects that focus on unit-specific topics as well as through problem solving and critical thinking.
