Vision:

The Georgian Forest Media Program will support the instructional focus of scholarly conversations and academic language through a robust instructional program.  The instructional program includes but is not limited to: quarterly research projects, inquiry-based learning, reinforcing academic language used in the classroom, and building student capacity as successful 21st-century learners.  In addition, the Georgian Forest media program encourages a lifelong love of literacy by building a diverse collection of literature that can both reflect the experiences of our scholars and open up new worlds to them.

Digital Citizenship:

This year MCPS is rolling out the CommonSense digital citizenship curriculum to help students stay safe online and be aware of the impact of their online actions.  This year started with grades 3-5 and it will be expanding to younger students in future years.  There is also a separate branch of CommonSense designed for parents, dedicated to providing media reviews (books, movies, websites, and apps) and age appropriate guidelines.  

Here is more information related to the lessons students completed this year:
