Mr. Philippou’s Grade 10 History class is coming in to work on their Rock Your Decade Culminating Assignment.Rock-Your-Decade-1
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.
Another fun glimpse into Canada through the decades is through a reality-type TV series called “Back in Time for Dinner” that aired last year. You’ll see fashion, entertainment, food, etc.
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 Ms. Kelso or Ms. Vilicic go when we’re looking for information about citation.
