Abstract
This course pack is an exploration of key events, personages and concepts, which contributed to Canadian nationhood in the years following WWI. The war changed the lives of all Canadians, and as such, the following four lessons will allow students to become more familiar with a changing Canada. After studying WWI, students will have knowledge of the ways society, politics and the economy were affected by the war and these lessons will allow students to further explore different Canadian perspectives, unique aspects of Canadian culture, and the different roles that people began to play in society after the war. This course pack offers four lessons which focus on the historical thinking concepts of Historical Significance, Cause and Consequence, Historical Perspectives and Continuity and Change. The lessons will also open a space for students to consider Historical Evidence and the Ethical Dimension as they are inextricably linked to topics of identity, nationhood and citizenship. Each lesson contains unique tasks and assessments, which require students to closely engage with Primary and Secondary Sources.
