This week the Education Library is showcasing resources that K to 12 teachers may want to borrow for Financial Literacy Month. This is a time to turn our attention to improving our learning in the area of financial literacy. There are many cross-curricular resources available for teachers and students to teach and learn more about financial matters, and we've brought to together a sampling for you. Learn something new about finance this month!
In the summer, 2017, we relocated 10 of our collections to bring together most of our resources for teachers on one level. Current Ministry of Education curriculum and support documents, DVDs, kits, big books, puppets, posters, CDs, K-12 textbooks and related teacher guides, children's and YA books, and professional journals for teachers are now all located on Floor 1 and all circulate for 2 weeks. The Reference Collection has moved up to Floor 2 and circulates for 3 days (with renewals possible unless the item is requested by someone else). We are now moving professional resources for teachers -- lesson and curriculum unit planning materials and books on classroom practice and the teaching profession -- to Floor 2. Research materials on Floor 2 will move to the newly designated Floor 3 Research Collection during 2018-19.
New furniture has been installed in the Teacher Resource Room across from our Service Desk and a Group Study Room with a table for 8, armchairs for 4, a 60" screen, and a 4' x 6' glass dry-erase board is available to be booked by students, staff and faculty. Use your Queen's netID to book the room from the Library's Group Study Rooms page.
