Period 2-ENG4U

Mr. Brown’s Grade 12 English class will be coming into the library to research topics surrounding the study of Oedipus.

Below you can find resources that will support your research.

Greek Mythology

Ancient History Encyclopedia

Encyclopedia Britannica

You are being asked to cite your research using MLA. Keep an accurate record of all sources you use and create a Working Works Cited list. This is a list that allows you to add or remove sources so you can ensure the Submitted Works Cited List is accurate. By showing your working Works Cited list to your teacher or to a teacher-librarian, you’ll be able to get ahead of the game and maybe even earn a higher grade.

Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!

Period Two- ENG4U

Ms. Shaw’s Grade 12 University Prep English class is coming in for a primer on MLA citation.

MLA is the style of choice for students studying in the Arts. You’ll find that it is used across all English classes here at Laurier (and most English Lit. courses in University too)

While you’ve probably seen MLA before, remember that is has undergone changes over the years. An easy primer on how to cite in MLA at Laurier can be found HERE.

In session, we will go over how to cite sections of an anthology, like the essays you’re currently deconstructing. We’ll also touch on citation generators and discuss why they’re a poor choice at this stage in your academic careers.

 

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 Three- ENG1P

Students from Ms. Shaw’s Grade 9 English class will be introduced to the Library through an Orientation session. How books are signed out, where the different sections of are library are and other information will be covered before the class gets a book talk.
