Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today
Welcome to the Library!
We won’t throw a bunch of Star Wars references at you today, we promise.
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.
Period 1 – CHC2D7
Mr. Philippou’s Grade 10 Pre-IB Canadian History class will be back to continue their work on their Indigenous Unit.
The links for your assignment can be found HERE.
Period 4 – CHE3O
Ms. Papoutsis’ Grade 11 African History class will be in to work on their Culminating activity.
Your assignment can be found here. View it here, or download a copy.
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.
