Sorry for the lack of updates – this has mostly been due to the fact that your attendance has been great, and you have been completing assignments so I haven’t had to update as often 🙂

Recently we watched The Power of One, and inspiring film about the beginnings of apartheid in South Africa.  I’m so glad that most of you enjoyed the film, despite its disturbing content at times.  Following the viewing, you began working on an assignment where you chose 2 quotations from the film (or novel) and wrote about each.  A copy of the assignment is on the handouts page.

Your completed quotation responses should now be posted to your blogs and you should have responded to at least three of your classmates posts.  Remember that part of your assessment includes these comments and meaningful responses.

We are now ready to begin talking about citation.  We will be learning about APA style.  On the library website, www.hopesecondarylibrary.com, there is a link to a tutorial that you will need to view.  The tutorial will make terms and style in APA more familiar to you before we begin working on our own citations.  There is also a worksheet to complete for next class.
