Periods 2 & 4- CHC2D

Mr. Philippou’s Grade 10 History classes will be coming to the Library to research a prominent Canadian of the Cold War Era (1945-1988) for their Cold War Spy Dossier Assignment.

To find information about your prominent Canadian, we suggest you use the following resources.

  1. The Library Catalogue allows you remote access to our print, digital and streaming resources from anywhere at any time. To access this resource, you’ll simply need your TDSB log-in information. Using this catalogue, you’ll be able to find the Biography for your prominent Canadian.
  2. The Canadian Encyclopedia is an excellent source of information for Canadian individuals (or for those with ties to Canada).
  3. The History databases and websites within the Virtual Library may be helpful. Just remember to choose Grade 9-12 and History as the Subject in the SEARCH feature. There is a site devoted to Canadian Prime Ministers and also CBC archives for news reports, past and present.
  4. The Toronto Star Historic Database, which can be found on the Toronto Public Library’s Website, allows readers to access articles from the newspaper’s archives.

Remember that you will need to include a bibliography using  Chicago style of Citation. It is crucial to properly reference information that is not your own in order to give credit where it’s due and also to avoid PLAGIARISM. Providing your teacher with a URL for a website used unfortunately will not cut it anymore.

Using the following information will put you on the right track to creating a bibliography to be proud of!

Below you’ll find the Laurier Guide for Chicago Citation.

Remember to look to OWL @ Purdue for other questions that arise about citation. It’s where Ms. Kelso or Ms. Vilicic go when we’re looking for information about citation.
