Well, except for this jpeg I guess……

 

By the way, remember that this is a great time to pick up a book to read. Exams (for you non-IB students at least) are still over a month away and maybe kicking back with a good novel is just the thing to make that Saturday afternoon amazing.

Give a hoot! Read a book.

In terms of research, we might suggest you use the following sites:

  • Blackpast.org is a robust series of resources that support the studies of African History in North America, Europe and Globally as well.  The google custom search feature at the top of the page makes navigating the website quite easy.
  • African History Month provides accessible articles about important people and events in African American history.
  • The Canadian Encyclopedia houses articles on many of the names found on your assignment, and also provides related articles and links too.
  • There are incredibly useful and age-appropriate databases found on the Virtual Library site. (I.e., they’re not too basic and they’re not University Graduate level hard) I’d suggest you look at Canadian Points of View, Global Issues in Context and the Advanced Placement Source.

You’re expected to complete a Reference list using APA format. We’ve created a Laurier-friendly primer on citing with APA, so please use this file found at APA Citation PDF.

Good luck and if you need any help, please feel free to ask.

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.
