Student Groups Use New Library Study Rooms | Schools
Nothing is more important to academic achievement than being a good reader. And OFTC has several new private study rooms in its new library at the Sandersville Campus where students can enjoy a great view, a quiet space, and access to thousands of books.
OFTC Instructor Dr. Tiffany Daniel and two of her ENGL 0988 Intermediate Reading and Writing students enjoyed using one of the private study rooms on Thursday to discuss a novel that will be read as part of their class.
The book is a New York Times best seller titled "The Age of Miracles" and is Karen Thompson Walker’s debut novel.
The Age of Miracles has been popular among book clubs and was recommended by OFTC's North Campus Librarian Sherri Harris, who recently read the book in her own book club.
“We are looking forward to using the novel as a springboard for both reading and writing activities to develop critical reading, writing, and thinking skills throughout the term," said Dr. Daniel. "I think the students will enjoy reading this coming-of-age story about Julia, who awakes to discover that the earth’s rotation has slowed, causing the days and nights to grow longer. This novel should provide many opportunities for study such as analyzing cause-effect relationships, character development, and the structure of a well-written novel. We are looking forward to a good read.”
