Exploring Canadian Stories During the World War One Era
MetadataShow full item record
We welcome teachers to use and modify the lessons in this package in order to explore various Canadian stories of WWI. These stories include: health care perspectives from Kingston ON, changes in Canadian warfare during the Great War, the creation and impact of the Treaty of Versailles, and Canadian innovations that drove prosperity during the 1920s. This resource package focuses on four historical thinking concepts from Seixas and Morton’s text, The Big Six Historical Thinking Concepts by using an anchoring overall expectation from the Ontario Grade 10 Academic History curriculum (see above). By using the Imaginative Education Research Group’s lesson framework, we aim to introduce historical thinking through activities and assessments that allow students to experience and engage with primary historical sources from the WWI and post-WWI period. These lessons do not comprise a coherent unit. Some lessons include materials for multiple days of instruction.
