Royal Society for Questions & Curiosity

The State Library of Victoria celebrates the one hundredth anniversary of the Domed reading room this year.

Along with events and festivities, the Education team has developed a an inquiry unit and series of activities for Early years students. The resources have been developed around the AusVELS and supports the teaching of history.

The resources are accompanied by a delightful video about asking the right questions. How do we find the information we need and still remember to explore and have fun?

The Royal Society for Questions & Curiosity features collection highlights from the Library and is designed as a pre-visit experience for students.

It also stands alone as a great introduction to critical thinking and questioning – core information literacy skills.

About Linda Angeloni

I am an Online Education officer at the State Library of Victoria and began my education career as an English, Italian, French secondary teacher more than a decade ago. By 2003, my love of linguistics and language development led me to become a generalist primary teacher in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, teaching predominately ESL students in the mainstream. In 2006, I began working at the State Library of Victoria and was part of the team that developed the ergo website and other exhibition related education resources. My work now involves writing and researching content for web based resources, the Bright Ideas blog, social media and the VicPLN.

    • That is fabulous- well done on coming up with such great questions. You did a great job using Haiku Deck to put it all together too.
