Below are some of the standard sessions that staff from the Thunder Bay Public Library can work with you to deliver:
Intro to the Library - Introduce your students to the wide range of services for children or teens, including homework help, online resources and more.
Great Reads - Encourage recreational reading with your students - we’ll use a combination of print and online materials to cover a topic of your choice. Popular topics include graphic novels, young adult authors, and Canadian classics. A perfect workshop for classes with independent studies or an upcoming holiday break.
Research Wizards - Enhance the research skills of your students with a live interactive session using online and print academic resources. Useful for preparing students to write essays, do projects & independent studies and cite works properly.
C.R.A.A.P. - Currency, Relevancy, Authority, Accuracy and Purpose. Fake news...alternative facts. Digital and media literacy are critical for students to learn. This workshop is ideal for grades 5-8 or 9-12 and will provide practical guidance in evaluating information and determining source credibility.
These sessions are also a great opportunity for students to get a library card or learn more about one of the most diverse resources available in their community. To schedule one of the above sessions with a skilled library staff member, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information and tips can be found online through the library’s website at www.tbpl.ca/infoliteracy. As always, class visits to your nearest library location are also available and can include stories, puppet shows, and more.
