Middle School Library Classes
Recently, students in Years 5 and 6 have been looking at improving their research skills. The Year 6 students started the term by looking at bibliographies - what they are and how to use an online resource to create one. Harvard Generator was used to practise referencing a book, an internet site, an online image and a newspaper article. Students will be able to use these skills in their projects for other subjects. In later lessons, Year 6 will be looking at plagiarism and copyright.
The Year 5s have discussed mind mapping and been introduced to a variety of examples before creating their own.
What’s new in the Library?
Both of the following are set in World War Two.
The Senior Library also has some books in Chinese for students in Years 7 -12 to borrow. These can be found in the following genres: Family, Historical and Humour.
