Period 2 – HSB3U
Ms. Magson’s Introduction to Anthropology, Sociology & Psychology class will be coming in to work on their Culminating Evaluation. A picture is worth a thousand words.
Obviously with the different research topics, students will need to look at different platforms for their research.
Refining your search terms will be the most important part of your research. Keep in mind that your currently somewhat vague research question has many different research avenues. Synonyms and the use of limiters for research engines might not be something you’re very familiar with… but it’s time you started.
For example, if you’re researching Glorification of Mental Illness on Social Media…. I’d consider using some of the following terms…. why might some of these elicit different results?
If you want to find some statistics to back up some of your claims, STATS Canada would be a great place to find data to support claims or for context.
The CBC archives provides you with access to thousands of audio clips and video clips that are easy to integrate into your presentation.
Here are some other very useful resources you can pick up at the Laurier Virtual Library.
Resources for the HSB3U Included are the Virtual Library Catalogue, the Canadian Points of View, Global Issues in Context and the Advanced Placement Source.
Before you can access the database list, remember to indicate that you’re in Gr 9-12. The CPOV and the GIC are exceptionally well suited here.
The Catalogue will also will allow you on-site and remote access to our Print, Electronic and Streaming Video Collection. You can also access the CBC archives through this portal, which has a great deal of resources.
You will also need to review the basics of Footnoting.
You’re now all experts (right?) in terms of creating a Bibliography. Congratulations. That’s no small feat.
The next step is to master the Footnote.
While a Bibliography provides your reader with a list of every resource you utilized, a Footnote shows from where every piece of research originated.
These footnotes should correspond with what you find in the Bibliography.
For this assignment, you will be using the Chicago school of citation. Remember that includes Footnotes and a Bibliography at the end of the essay.
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.
When citing photos from online sources, try to find the original photographer or source and site as you would an online source.
