    From Pope Francis

    Read the thoughts of the most up-to-date Pope the world has ever seen.

    Here Pope Francis discusses our world as a common home, we all live here, and the duties we should all share in order to better take care of God's creation.

    The second link is a discussion guide for this writing where questions posed provide valuable thought and time to reflect.

      How to make a bibliography



      Electronic resources to help with issues

      Catholic College Wodonga subscribes to databases for student use. These 3 are particularly useful for issues - Echo online, Newsbank and EBSCO.

      Echo online is an index of current issues in the media. It uses The Age, The Australian and The Herald Sun. There is a general introduction to the issues, arguments for and against and a link to articles. This is a really great starting point!

      Newsbank indexes The Age, The Australian, The HeraldSun, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Weekly Times and has full text articles. It also has a list of Hot Topics and current issues. This is very helpful for understanding the issue.

      EBSCO covers Australian and international newspapers and magazines and has some full text. It is great for locating articles.

      FULL TEXT  means the whole article is available for you to print or save.

      CITATION ONLY means you are given the address of the article (eg The Age May 5 2013 page 4) and you have to go to the hard copy and locate the article.
