Welcome to the Library and Learning Commons!

It’s a snowy day out there today. Hope you brought spare shoes. 🙂

Morning session – Maharaj – CHV2O1 – Civics & Citizenship

It is crucial to properly reference information that is not your own in order to give credit where it’s due and also to avoid PLAGIARISM. Providing your teacher with a URL for a website used unfortunately will not cut it anymore

Using the following information will put you on the right track to creating a bibliography to be proud of! (Remember to keep track of where you found your information so that formatting your bibliography will be a breeze!)

Below you’ll find the Laurier Guide for Chicago Citation.


Remember to look to OWL @ Purdue for other questions that arise about citation. It’s where Ms. Kelso or Ms. Vilicic go when we’re looking for information about citation.

Afternoon Session – Liang – SNC2D

Mr. Liang’s Grade 10 Science class will be coming down to learn about Fake News.



We’ll talk about:

  • The Spread of Fake News
  • How to assess a source
  • Taking a deep dive on Bill Nye
  • Bad Presentations and How to Avoid Them

You’ll be back in the library later this week to learn about APA Citation.

Thursday, November 11th

Today, we would like to respectfully observe Remembrance Day, where those who lost their lives in, to and for conflict are remembered by those who lived and endure.

History of the Poppy
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,—
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est [Latin for “It is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country“.]

Pro patria mori. (Owen, Wilfred, Dulce et Decorum Est)

Booked Classes

Mr. Furguile’s ENG2D class will be coming into the Library today to talk about Memoirs.

Memoirs are amazing works of writing that look at one’s own life. For this assignment, students will need to find a memoir to read and explore.

Ms. Karasan will be working with you today to show you a great list of memoirs and help you find one you’re interested in.


Below, you’ll find the slideshow presented in class about the importance of the Memoir.

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021

Ms. Gentile’s ESL-B section will be coming to the Library today to research Canadian animals.

We’ve pulled a collection of books from our collection for you to use.

Also, we’ll spend time learning about how to effectively use Google Search Terms.

Lastly, we’ll look at Simple English Wikipedia, which is designed for emerging English Language learners.

Today, we’ll be hosting two classes!

Morning Session – Ms. Jackson’s CGC1D (Grade 9 Geography)

Today, we’ll be discussing APA citation.

This form of citation helps students show the source of their research and is quite simple to accomplish. We’ll talk about how we write a References list together in class.


Afternoon Session – Ms. Magson’s HSB4U (Grade 12 Society: Challenge & Change)

Today, you’ll be learning about how to use STATS Canada. There’s a few other sources that will be of use too…

We’ll be talking about the different ways you can use the search options and what happens when a research source is not designed with young people in mind. It’s designed for professional researchers, who know what they’re doing. You (mostly) know what you’re doing, so we’ll work on the tips & tricks to get you there today.
