Hmm, for research I have always felt that going to the LIBRARY was a good place to start. You know looking at old newpapers, etc.

You might try newspaper archives of Toronto newspapers. (i.e. The Toronto Star, Telegram etc) It's going to be "challenging" finding stuff on the net, so if it were me doing this essay, I'd go to the library as some publications may even be out of print or whatever. Have fun (y)

Honestly, I don't think I ever wrote a research paper similar to yours without using the microfiche machine in Willis Library. When you look at the microfiche vs. online, you might get the same information, but the microfiche will show ads from the newspaper, and you geta better understanding of the times that you are researching.

Is it too late to find another "Internet friendly" subject to do an essay on? If so, oh well. It sucks to be a student sometimes, eh. Good luck anyway. :)

if it was my choice i wouldnt have chosen this subject,our teacher wrote each subject on a peace of paper and he put them in a bag then he told us to take out a peace of paper,and poor me got the hardest,there were easy subjects like the avro arrow,expo 67,CBC,hockey night in canada,......but i just didnt have enough luck:( (n)

Oh another question! i will use the little information i have but i need ur help to give me some ideas,let me tell u about yorkville a little:


(((((During the 1960's, Yorkville was the center of hippy culture in Canada. Many folk musicians, such as Joni Mitchell, got their start playing coffee houses in this area. However, by the early 1970's, developers moved in and transformed Yorkville into a trendy shopping district for the upper crust
In the 1960s, Yorkville flourished as Toronto's bohemian, cultural centre, and was considered by some to be the breeding grounds for some of Canada's most noted musical talents, including Joni Mitchell and Neil Young.
At that time, Yorkville was also known as the Canadian capital of counterculture and the hippie movement. In 1968, nearby Rochdale College at the University of Toronto was opened on Bloor Street as an experiment in counterculture education
Yorkville is Canada's hippie heartland. Full of coffeehouses, boutiques, longhairs, draft dodgers, and freaks, Yorkville is a tourist attraction — one where the tourists prefer to watch the excitement from the safety of their cars. In the village, the Beatle-haired kids, drugs and free love are rampant.
But the Yorkville hippies aren't all love and marijuana. , they hold a major sit-in protest in 1967 to protect their street from cops, tourists and fume-belching cars. They want to preserve their island of co-operation and love from the violence erupting in cities across the United States. But the Yorkville uprising story doesn't begin with a sit-in; it begins with a chair-in.
Home to Bohemians in the 1950s and hippies in the 1960s.)))))))

i have to do a 5 paragraph essay an essay has 3parts: 1)intro, 2)body(3 arguements that begin with a topic sentence that provides transition and link,and states the ideas supporting the thesis),3)conclusion i need help on the thesis statement and the body arguements(i need 3),u guys got any ideas?
BTW: u might think im very lazy but believe me i got no idea what to do.

Just a tip, decideon a spelling of "hippy", you have it spelled out two different ways and add "" to the first spelling of it.

:eek:
Horrible sentence. How can you hold (present tense) a sit in in 1967? I would leave out the marijuana reference since you have no absis behind it.
Your tenses are way off.
