It’s Time for Trivia!

In anticipation of this week’s exciting release of the movie version of Veronica Roth’s bestselling young adult novel Divergent, I think we should feature a little trivia and give away a few goodies. Rather than reveal juicy details from this super popular book, let’s instead highlight one of the best resources Durham offers its students and staff. If you aren’t using the online resources through Cobb Digital Library, you are definitely complicating your educational experience. CDL provides current, reliable, and accurate information from trustworthy experts in all academic areas and is a one-stop shop for students and teachers. During the morning news each day this week, a trivia question about CDL will be presented. Students and teachers are encouraged to send their answers to the media center. Winners will be announced daily and will have an opportunity to choose from my stash of Scholastic books, including recently added copies of Divergent. Let’s play.
