We’ll start our lesson with a look at plagiarism and academic honesty, using the tutorial “You Quote It, You Note It”.
We will review what you’ve learned with “APA Style for Beginning Scientists” and youwill have your own copy of our references. You’ll go home today with all the tools you need to be a research superstar.
For future reference, the OWL Purdue site can answer all of your questions.
Use this note-taking sheet to keep track of your sources and information. Open it with your tdsb login, then make a copy to your drive.
The TDSB Virtual Library has an excellent list of sources for Economics research. You can access the list here. Under Grade, select 9-12, then under Subject, select Business Studies & Economics.

And then you will be SO READY for whatever delicious research assignment gets served up next!
Good morning, good students of Ms Gooding’s OLC class! Today you will learn how to make a GOOD Works Consulted page for your culminating project.
This handout will help you to find all the information and do your very BEST on this assignment!
Finding scholarly articles that are accessible and usable can be a challenge, but your MPC library’s got you.
- Pick up a bookmark with passwords (or follow links to them on the TDSB library site) and explore Advanced Placement Database on the TDSB Virtual Library (Click Search A-Z Databases). Remember to narrow your search to “Full Text” and “Peer-Reviewed.”
- Get out your Toronto Public Library card and head over to J-Stor, a huge database of archived and almost-new academic resources. Use the same search limitations and play with your search modifiers in the “Advanced Search” option.
- Cite it all! Most databases have a citation formulated for you, so you can simply copy and paste it into your Works Cited list. Use OWL Purdue to keep your APA citation style on point, and you’re well on your way to researching like a pro!
We are now in the 8th edition of the Modern Languages Association Handbook. As more and more research is done digitally, rules are changing to make it easier to cite any type of source. From the MLA website:
The eighth edition of the MLA Handbook introduces a new model for entries in the works-cited list, one that reflects recent changes in how works are published and consulted. Previously, a writer created an entry by following the MLA’s instructions for the source’s publication format (book, DVD, Web page, etc.). That approach has become impractical today, since publication formats are often combined (a song listened to online, for example, could have been taken from a record album released decades ago) or are undefinable.
In the new model, the work’s publication format is not considered. Instead of asking, “How do I cite a book [or DVD or Web page]?” the writer creates an entry by consulting the MLA’s list of core elements—facts common to most works—which are assembled in a specific order. The MLA core elements appear below:
