Back Support for the BHS Media Center

The Brighton Education Fund has enriched the offerings of the BHS Media Center and Library through several grants, three of which are described here.

Video equipment in the library

The library complex includes a full-sized classroom used by the library staff in student orientation and in teaching research techniques. The room may be scheduled by classroom teachers for instruction as well. A large-screen television and video converter funded by BEF facilitates presentations to a full class and to smaller groups. Teachers can now easily present techniques for utilizing public libraries and other data sources. This broadens access to both the resources of the Brighton High School library and to sources available on the Internet, all of which encourage research for student projects.

Through examples presented to a large group, students learn how to critically evaluate the information they find on the Internet. Follow-up work can be done on computers within the library or located elsewhere in the building.



Alumni Authors Collection

BEF is also proud to have helped fund the development of a collection of books authored by Brighton alumni. A complete list of alumni authors and their works is maintained on the Brighton Schools Alumni Association web site.


Alumni Authors Collection




In 1998, BEF funded the purchase of a set of books on audiocassette that parallels the literature in the English curriculum. This series, containing many dramatic readings, is a very effective vehicle for auditory learners.
