The second part of the voting within the Creative Schools is now completed. Below you can see a list of what artists the students have voted that they want to meet. We hope that the school will be able to get bookings done with all these artists. This is the result:
Grade 8 + 9: Laurie Halse Anderson, author, United States. (Holly Black, another author from United States, also got very many votes.)
Grade 8: will do a drama workshop with Gothenburg English Studio Theatre (GEST) and those who are studying Swedish or attend LGRM will also meet the actor Oskar Sternulf.
Grade 9: will do a creative writing workshop with Matiss Silins, poet and spoken word pedagogue.
Here are some books by Laurie Halse Anderson:
ISGR is lucky to have been awarded grants from the national Arts Council for the second year in a row now, in order to arrange Creative school. This means that the students will have the opportunity to meet professional culture practitioners, as they have chosen themselves through a democratic process. And these culture practitioners will also do interesting and inspiring workshops with the students, incorporated in the regular teaching.
The voting for grade 6 and 7 have now been completed. It only remains to check if the artists are still available, so we can get all bookings done. These are the artists as the students in grade 6 and 7 wanted to meet:
Grade 6: Daniela Ruxandra Stoian, illustrator, from Romania
Grade 7: Booma, dance / DJ / music artist, from the UK
Grade 6 + 7: Kazu Kibuishi, illustrator and author, from Japan
Grade 6 + 7: Mats Berggren, author, from Sweden
Below you can find some books by Kazu Kibuishi, from Japan and Mats Berggren from Sweden.
The library now is hosting a new exhibition: the products of grade 8’s work on the love theme. The students have created books dealing with the question what love is. This time, the exhibition is outside the library, since the library is currently full of book trolleys and textbooks. We apologize for that!
We would like to give you some book tips for summer reading. Below you can find some tips of what other students have borrowed during the summer and also some books on the love theme.
Are you interested in wild plants? The library has in cooperation with the science teacher Susanna Kertesz recently added a resource to identify plants growing in Sweden and the Nordic region: The Digiflora database. You can find it in the right menu bar below the heading Other resources. It is freely available and contains more than 1500 plants. It is run by the engineers Jan-Olof Nordenstam, Ulf Larsson and Ingmar Tönnby in cooperation with other professions.
Digiflora is available in English, Swedish, Danish and French and the names of plants in more languages than that. To use Digiflora you fill in information about the plant you have found and can get help to determine the name of it. The name is also available in Latin.
The library wishes all of you a very nice summer!
If you want to get in touch with the library during the summer you can always call 031-7089206 or send an e-mail to email@example.com. The library will only be closed the week 30-31.
