CHV201

Materials to support the Wrongfully Convicted Assignment in the current Civics classes of Ms. Cross, Ms. Gandhi, Ms. Magson and Mr. Woodley

Here are some links that you might find useful:

The Innocence Project

Innocence Canada formerly known as The Association in Defence of the Wrongfully Convicted (AIDWYC)

Injustice Busters

CBC Digital Archives

We also recommend Gale in Context-Global Issues, an excellent database found in the Virtual Library. It is particularly good for this assignment because you can access Canadian news articles. Because you are accessing it from home, you will need to make sure that you are logged into AW, and use the following login/password: trillium/trillium.

You will be creating a Bibliography in Chicago Style and it’s helpful if you have some examples to look at. We have created a guide for you to use and also recommend OWLPurdue if you would like an online source that is trustworthy.

Remember that with any citation for any class, your teacher’s instructions  will be the ones to follow.
