ELA Standards: Reading Informational Text
Integration of Knowledge & Ideas
Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words in order to address a question or solve a problem.
BOOKS are far superior to articles because they often have more images and text. Books should be the first stop in every research plan.
All the BOOKS below contain information about library careers and resources. Flushing High School Library has the books listed in the catalog. Other BOOKS about the library can be found at the Queens Public Library.
