Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!

 

Period 4 – HZT4U

Today Mr. Philippou’s Grade 12 Philosophy class will be introduced to the 17th updated version of the Chicago Manual of Style.

The file can be found right here at Chicago Citation at Laurier.

Look at this slide show for basics on how/where/when to use the Footnotes.

 

Here is an example essay file called From the dawn of time where you see how footnotes work.

Students in Mr. Philippou’s Philosophy class are also here to work on their “The Allegory of the Cave” assignment. A copy of your assignment can be found here.

The TDSB Library based resources will require login access when using off the TDSB network. Consult your Student Agenda or TDSB Learnmark for those login passwords. If you need help, ask your Teacher-Librarian for help.

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 CPW4U 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 Library Catalogue

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.

Citation

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.

Chicago Citation at Laurier

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