ASV Librarian Presenting

Grade 6 Research Sessions

Mr. Caamaño, ASV’s Head Librarian and Mr. Landete, the Innovation and Technology Coordinator, recently came into Grade 6 classrooms to discuss research, both in the context of physical sources and in an online environment. Students were shown the difference between primary and secondary sources, how to work with higher-level materials, and how to evaluate sources and move beyond superficial searches using Google.

As Grade 6 continues their History unit on the American Revolution, the ASV Library will pay a follow-up visit to touch on citing sources and integrating research into their work. The intention of these sessions is to gradually build student research and critical thinking skills in preparation for progressively in-depth investigations like the IB Extended Essay in Grade 11.
