Page 2 of 6 Teacher Trainings First Annual Caribbean Challeng e (2011) 4 On Thursday, November 17, 2011, 20 top students from the Academy for Advanced Academics (at FIU), Felix Varela Senior High School, John A Ferguson Senior High School were chosen by their teachers to participate in the Caribbean Challenge at the Green Library at FIU. The students l earned about the Digital Library of the Caribbean and Analyzing Primary and Secondary Sources from Miami Dade teacher Daniel Vinat and dLOC Coordinator Brooke Wooldridge. They participated in a roundtable discussion with FIU historian Sherry Johnson, Speci al Collections Librarian Vicki Silvera and African and African Diaspora graduate student Felix Jean Louis. Finally, the student teams worked with the key dLOC resources in the bookshelves below selected by FIU Latin American and Caribbean Center graduate s tudent Pierre Losson. They had one hour to read, interpret and prepare a five minute presentation of their findings. All of the presentations were excellent, but the honorable judges FIU Librarians Gayle Williams and Adis Beesting and FIU Latin American an d Caribbean Associate Director Liesl Picard selected the group on Panama as the overall winner for their ability to place Panama in the international context, well coordinated presentation and clear description of the primary and secondary sources. The eve nt was co sponsored by the Digital Library of the Caribbean, FIU Libraries, FIU Latin American and Caribbean Center and Miami Dade County Schools. We owe a special thanks to the County District Supervisor for the Curriculum and Instruction Division of Soci al Sciences and Life Skills at Miami Dade County Public Schools, Bob Brazofsky, for his support of this event and the funding to make it possible for the teachers to participate in this important experience. Most of all, we thank Daniel Vinat for the visio n to develop this project and John Burkowski, Diana Nadaskay, Carlos Ardaya for being excellent teachers and providing their students with exceptional opportunities both inside the classroom and in the community.
