  • 19. Works Cited “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 efficiency 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 information. It helped use come up with questions and some answers. It is a first hand account 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 information. It is not specifically children soldiers in Sierra Leone, however it provides information about how the children are treated and used. It provides a lot of facts. We checked the publishing organization to back up the source. This organization proved to be a very credible 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.
  • 20. 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%2FNewsDetailsWindow%3FdisplayGroupName%3DNews%2 6prodId%3DOVIC%26action%3De%26windowstate%3Dnormal%26catId%3D%26documentId%3 DGALE%7CA160065469>. This Article was connecting the book “A Long Way Gone” to the real life scenarios relating 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 connect 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 specifically 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 rebels and military use children as warriors. This source was an article from an encyclopedia. We checked this source and it proved its self reliable.
