to the Prince Edward School library and to our program of information literacy.
We believe that every student should have the skills necessary to navigate in
today's information-rich society. Determining information needs, recognizing and
selecting appropriate resources - whether print or online and managing the
information are fundamental skills needed for successful academic
Throughout the year, the teacher-librarian works with all classroom teachers
on units of study referred to as “inquiry-based learning.” This provides
students with valuable opportunities to work on their research and technology
skills. Students explore various topics through questioning, inquiring, reading,
making connections, and organizing ideas. Learning to manage all kinds of
information, from a variety of sources, is both challenging and fun! It is a
very exciting opportunity for all involved.
Students also visit the library once per six-day cycle to borrow books,
either fiction or non-fiction. Book exchange times allow students to explore the
library and find something of interest to read. We love to read, and want to
share that passion with our students.
