Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!

Period 2 – PLF4M

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

For the research, may I suggest the following links on the Virtual Library?

The Canadian Encyclopedia
The Library’s Databases
Biography.com
The Players’ Tribune

Google might lead you down some useful paths, but for the most part; it can be inefficient. Try looking at associations your chosen person was affiliated with. Look at Professional, National, Regional or Municipal Sports Halls of Fame when looking at individuals associated with Canadian sport. Did you know there’s even a Scarborough Walk of Fame? Even the smaller facilities or halls of fame will include short biographies of these people.

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 over the APA rules of formatting in depth on your second day with us.

The file discussed with the class for easy access can be found here

.

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 Four- CHW3M

Mr. Kosowan’s Grade 11 Ancient Civilization class will be coming to the Library to research for their Culminating assignment: Time Travelling Tourism Campaign.

We  suggest you use the following resources :

The Library Catalogue allows you remote access to our print, digital and streaming resources from anywhere at any time. To access this resource, you’ll simply need your TDSB log-in information.

In the Virtual Library, using the Search feature, indicating Grades 9-12, check EBSCO’s History database.

Instead of just going to Google, we advise that you consult the following databases as well.

Fordham University has created an Internet Sourcebook that provides primary source documents different civilizations and eras across History.

JSTOR

Another good website to look at is Ancient History Encyclopedia, found here:

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.
