ENG1D6U1L1 Library Introduction and the Independent Novel

September 12, 2014:

Today's class was held in the Library. Thank you to Mr. Giles for a great presentation. Students learned about the resources available at the library, both print and electronic. Students learned how to login to the wifi (passwords were reset), rules for the library, library hours, how to print and much more.

Students were also given a valuable resource book that they will use for the rest of their time at Northern. It is a cross curricular resource: Research Success @ Your Library.

After the presentation, students were given an opportunity to get started on our Independent Reading Project. Please see (and print) the handouts below for more details:
