The Library at École Pauline Johnson
The teacher-librarian is Mme Stina Morissette.
Library items are generally lent for a 2 week period, though Primary students especially tend to return them on their library day each week. Students may renew loans as needed. K-1 students may borrow one book, in French language only. Grade 2 students may borrow 2 items, at least one must be in French. Grade 3-7 students may borrow 3 items, at least two must be in French.
STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO ALWAYS HAVE ONE FRENCH LIBRARY BOOK THAT IS AT THEIR READING LEVEL.
Students are only permitted one cartoon-type book at a time and only one audio-visual at a time.
Citing reference sources:
Whenever a student incorporates an idea, quote, data, image of other content that is not theirs into a paper of project, he/she must list the source of information in the form of a bibliography.
Primary students should include: title, author and year of publication for a book, and for a Website, note the title, URL, and date of access.
Intermediate students are encouraged to use standard citation format (MLA). A very handy website that will format resources correctly is the following: http://www.bibme.org/
The following link is a search tool which includes many reference tools, study tips and online safety guidelines. It is very “kid-friendly” and the content is appropriate for use by elementary age students. kids.yahoo.com
