Greetings, Beacons!

Next week we will be highlighting the LIFESKILL of Resourcefulness.  Resourcefulness means to respond to challenges and opportunities in innovative and creative ways.  Students who use resourcefulness search for information outside of textbooks, use materials in new and creative ways, and are innovative when creating projects.  Real world applications of resourcefulness are reusing and recycling, and finding new ways to use technology in medicine, education, government, and business.

We are a school of readers so here are a few books that link literature with resourcefulness.  Enjoy!
