Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!

Period 1 – PLF4M1-11

Ms. Savage’s Leadership class will be coming in to work on their Research.

For the research, I’d suggest the following links on the Virtual Library.

The Canadian Encylopedia
The Gale Virtual Reference Library
Advanced Placement Source
Biography.com
The Players Tribune

 

Resources for the PLF4M

Citation

For this assignment, you will be using the APA school of citation. Remember that includes in-text citation and a References page at the end of the essay. We’ll go

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 Mr. Kosowan or Ms. Vilicic go when we’re looking for information about citation.

 

Period 2 – HSP3U1-11

Ms. Magson’s HSP class is coming in to work on the Mental Health Case File. For this assignment, you’ll need quality resources from different areas. The Library’s Mental Health print collection is fairly well established, covering many different topics that will be helpful.

To access them, use our Catalogue; found on the Virtual Library. The Catalogue also provides you access to streaming video and other electronic resources. When off site,  you’ll need to log in with your TDSB information.

 

Other digital sources can be found in the following slideshow but Advanced Placement source might be the most important.

 

Another valuable source would be the Vanier Institute of the Family, which has an awful interface but excellent research on mental health and its impact upon families.
