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.
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 Television, Télé-Québec, RDS are all major sources of Quebec and Francophone culture…
Period 4 – HHS4U
Ms. Cross’s Families in Canada class will be coming in to work on their Culminating ISU Research.
For your research, have a look at the following links on the Virtual Library as well as the URL’s provided by Ms. Cross in your handout.
The Library’s Databases:
Advanced Placement Source and Global Issues in Context are two amazing databases.
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.
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 or report.
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.
