Period 3 –  HSB4U

Ms. Magson’s Challenge & Change class will be coming in to work on their Culminating Evaluation.
Obviously with the different research topics, students will need to look at different platforms for their research.

Search Strings

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?

Social Media
Facebook
Twitter
Mental Health
Instagram
Glorification
Glamour
Famous
Expectation
Appearance
Self Harm
Suicide
Teen
Teenager

Resources

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 HSB4U 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

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 Mr. Kosowan or Ms. Vilicic go when we’re looking for information about citation.

Period 4- ENG1D17

Ms. McMulkin’s Grade 9 English class is coming in to work on their Greek Mythology assignment.

To research your selected Ancient Greek character, you’ll need to do some digging.

Let us save you some time and use the following sites.

Greek Gods And Goddesses: This site has links for some of the major heroes of the Aegean world.

Pantheon.org: A database that can be used to navigate all things mythology.

Fordham University: The Internet Sourcebook has a great deal of documents and manuscripts for all historic periods. This particular link focuses solely on the Ancient Greek world.

The Perseus Project: From TUFTS University, this collection of cultural, historic and literary sources from the Greco-Roman world provides you with excellent material.

Greek Mythology

Theoi Greek Mythology

The Library Catalogue: The Catalogue will also will allow you on-site and remote access to our Print, Electronic and Streaming Video Collection.
