Period 1 – PPL30F

Ms. Savage’s Grade11 Health Class will be working on research for their Wellness Conference assignment.

The Library Catalogue is a great place to start your research. You’ll find books and media resources on a variety of topics.

The Virtual Library has several websites that have the information that you are looking for. Remember to use the SEARCH feature, click on Grades 9-12, and your subject which is Health and PE.

Advanced Placement Source has many articles about your topics. Remember to limit your search by choosing the Full Text option and limiting the date range to the past ten years or so.

Global Issues in Context is another great database with many types of resources: articles from newspapers, magazines, journals, books, videos, interviews, etc. It is the Amazon of databases.

Teen Health and Wellness and Teens Health are both good sources of information focused on teens and presented in very user-friendly format.

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) has a lot of information on mental health issues.


For this assignment, you will be using the APA school of citation. Remember that includes a References page or slide at the end of the presentation.

The file discussed with the class for easy access can be found here The APA Working File.

Remember to look to OWL @ Purdue for other questions that arise about citation. It’s where Ms. Kelso or Mrs. Vilicic go when we’re looking for information about citation.
