Tuesday, June 6th – Extended Essay Workshop

Welcome Year One IB Students,

Today we’ll be using the Extended Essay Guide, found on the top bar of this website.

All students will be provided with time to work on their Extended Essays and ask questions.

When I am confronted with questions about the E.E., for which I don’t have answers I go to the IB Guide found HERE.

Period 1, 3 and 4 – CHC2D7

The 3 classes taught by Mr. Oldridge, Ms. Gaudette and Mr. Philippou are coming in to work on their Rock Your Decade.

The Library has a collection of books that cover different decades in Canadian and North American history.  These books can be found in the 971 section under the Dewey Decimal System. Books with more American focused information can be found in 973.

The Canadian Encyclopedia – This thorough collection of resources covers most Canadian options, but also looks at the local impact of several globally renowned individuals. It also provides links and a bibliography for easy access.

If you want to find some statistics to back up some of your claims, STATS Canada would be a great place to find data from the decades.

In terms of popular culture and photos/videos/song; CBC Curio would be a great source as well.

The Canadian Historical Association has a collection of useful resources to support today’s Canadian History student.

Canada: A Country by Consent was created by Canadian Historians who were wanted Canadian-Content created by Canadian writers. It has articles about the major events of Canadian history.

The CBC archives provides you with access to thousands of audio clips and video clips that are easy to integrate into your presentation.

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.

The file discussed with the class for easy access can be found here

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.

Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!

 

Period 3 – HZT4U

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

Yes, there is now a 17th Edition. Which means the old PDF or printout you’ve used in the past is now obsolete. You are welcome to take it out of your binder and (safely and neatly) throw it into the Blue Bin. Shooting for 3 works, but I’d suggest an aggressive dunk.

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

The basics are unchanged, but we feel that this new resource will provide you with a thorough overview of the expectations laid out by the 17th Edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.

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.
