      "AK-47: the Sierra Leone child soldier." BBC news. BBC news, 6 Dec. 2005. Web.      22 Oct. 2010. <http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4500358.stm>. This      article was very interesting. It is a newspaper article about how modern      weapons improve the efficency of children soldiers. It also provided      specific details about the issue. The newspaper proved its self reliable.
      Beah, Ishmael. A Long Way Gone. New York: Sarah Crichton, 2007. Print. We used      this book to provide the basis for our informatiuon. It helped use come up      with questions and some answers. It is a first hand acount of what      happened.
      "Child soldiers." war child. N.p., n.d. Web. 26 Oct. 2010.      <http://www.warchild.org.uk/issues/      child-soldiers?gclid=COKZ0Zr28KQCFc9a7AodEmbm1A>. This resource gives a      lot background imformation. It is not specificaly children soldiers in      Sierra Leone, however it provides information about how the children are      treated and used. It proviedsalot of facts. We checked the publising     organization to back up the source. This organization proved to be a very      crediable source.
      Child Soldiers in Sierra Leone. 2003. Zenger Media. DVD. This DVD was provided      by Ms. Hamilton. It was about the UNs efforts to help children that have      been rescued from life as a child soldier. It provided background      information to about the issue. It told us how they are helping the      orphaned children, and how they are trying to find their family.
      Jones, Lynne. "The boys of war." Globe & Mail 3 Mar. 2007: n. pag. Gale Opposing      Viewpoints in Context. Web. 22 Oct. 2010. <http://infotrac.galegroup.com/      default/      cant48040?cause=http%3A%2F%2Fic.galegroup.com%2Fic%2Fovic%2FNewsDetailsPage%2FNew      sDetailsWindow%3FdisplayGroupName%3DNews%26prodId%3DOVIC%26action%3De%26windowsta      te%3Dnormal%26catId%3D%26documentId%3DGALE%7CA160065469>. This Article      was conecting the book "A Long Way Gone" to the real life      scenarios relateing to the issue at hand. It was a good summary of the book      and touched bases on our issue greatly. as far as evaluating this article,      I trust Gale database. I also know that this is a legitimate newspaper in      Canada. This will help increase my understanding of the book and will help      me conect the book to my research.It also gave me another opinion on the      issue and how it relates to the book.
      "Military use of children." Wikipedia. N.p., 18 Oct. 2010. Web. 26 Oct. 2010.      <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_use_of_children#Sierra_Leone>.      This source provided a very broad over view of the issue. THis gave us a      better understanding of where to focus our research to find specific facts.      It also told us specificaly about children soldiers in Sierra Leone. We got      this source from wikipedia there were no flags on the page ,but we still      check some of the information to make sure it was reliable.
      Richards, Paul. "Sierra Leone." Encyclopedia of Genocide and Crimes Against      Humanity. Ed. Dinah L Shelton. Vol. 2. Detroit: Macmillan Reference      USA, 2005. 946-954. Gale Virtual Reference Library. Web. 22 Oct. 2010.      <http://go.galegroup.com/ps/      i.do?&id=GALE%7CCX3434600309&v=2.1&u=&it=r&p=GVRL&sw=w>. This source      provided information about the civil war in Sierra Leone. This was helpful,      because it gave us a good background to why the war is going on. The      reasons why they rebals and millitary use children as warriors. This source      was an article from an encyclodidia. We checked this source and it proved      its self reliable.
