Library Research Project - Books for Wednesday

Dear Parents,
Assalamu Alaikum,

Your child is in the process of a research project in Library class.  We have tackled the first step in research (Task Definition).

This week, we are working on Information Seeking Strategies. For next Wednesday, they will need to find resources that will help them answer their questions. They will need the following: nonfiction books dealing with their topic, magazine articles found in a Canadian historical magazine, websites and databases. I have already given them a list of databases that are found at the Ottawa Public Library.  They need to circle the databases that they feel will help them in their quest to find answers to their questions.

They need to have all of their resources for next Wednesday, inshaAllah because they will evaluate and select the ones that they feel are relevant to what they are looking for.

Jazakum Allahu Khairan for your help in this matter.
