Continuing from the last IL session, which introduced all 12 classes of Year 7 students to Dewey Decimal Classification, I showed them the Subject Index.
I started with a brief recap by making use of the podcast I had previously created about the 10 main classes in the MRC.
I then gave them a story which had some missing words (those naughty book worms again!). I demonstrated how I could look up the missing word in the Subject Index to find the “magic” or Dewey Shelf number. They then had to fill all the gaps using the Subject Index, learning their way around it as they did the activity.
The Subject Index is available in an editable format from Carel Press it is called the “Find it Index”
