The New Nation and Its Peoples: Differences in Legal Status for Canada’s Different Groups
MetadataShow full item record
Our set of lessons, entitled The New Nation and Its Peoples: Differences in Legal Status for Canada’s Different Groups, include eight lessons which have been prepared for teaching Grade 8 History. These eight lessons are a part of Strand A: Creating Canada, 1850-1890. In particular, these lessons focus on two expectations, A1.2: assess the impact that differences in legal status and in the distribution of rights and privileges had on various groups and individuals in Canada between 1850 and 1890, and A1.3: analyse some of the actions taken by various groups and/or individuals in Canada between 1850 and 1890 to improve their lives. Although the specific expectations A1.2 and A1.3 are the focus of our eight lessons, other expectations in the curriculum are also addressed in these eight lessons. The curriculum connections for each lesson are outlined in the “curriculum expectations” section of each lesson.
