Grade 12
The curriculum expectations for CHI4U include a wide chronological period, with several complex details about Canada’s history. Taking this into consideration, the creator of these lesson plans felt that this course should be taught thematically, instead of chronologically. As such, these lesson plans are better suited to a CHI4U course being taught thematically. Some suggested themes are: Aboriginal issues, women in Canada, French-English relations, human rights, evolution of politics and Canada’s economic past. These eight lessons fall under the theme of Aboriginal issues, the subject being contact between Aboriginals and Europeans. For all primary sources and secondary sources, please see the Appendix.
