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.

Citation

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.

Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!

Period 3 – FSF3U7

Mr. Matchett’s Grade 11 IB French class is coming in to work on their research on La culture francophone.

There’s a whole big world of French resources online, following these slides to take to you where you need to go.

French Resources

Don’t forget that Google will be a possible source, after you have changed the language from English to French, before searching your topic.

Advice….. for what it’s worth.

  • Pick something that you haven’t researched before. If you go down the same path, you won’t be terribly inspired.
  • Into sports? Instead of looking at Maurice Richard or the Montreal Olympics you could look at Youppi or why Quebec football teams are so dominant at the Highschool and University level?
  • Think creatively of what French resources you could research. TFO, TVA, CBC TelevisionTélé-Québec, RDS are all major sources of Quebec and Francophone culture…

Period 4 – HHS4U
