Unit 3 - Depression and Second World War - 1929-1945 (2P)

Page history last edited by Rachel Collishaw 8 years, 1 month ago

 

Unit Question - How did Canadians React to Extreme Problems? (Historical Perspectives)

 

Unit Task - Extreme News Report (1930s) and/or News Article WWII in Canada

 

Unit Consolidation:

1) Add events to the class timeline - see example here - groups decide which events are most significant, defend them and class votes on which go on the wall. You can colour code the events - more pride or more shame or neutral
2) At the end of every unit, check in with the Course Questions using the Skills Inventory and the My Five "Blog Post" (it might work better as a My Three)

 

 

 

Course question introduction: 

Use sticky notes - write down 1 problem that you have had in the last few months. Place it on the board under the ranking (1-5) where 5 is the most extreme.

A useful handout to help with this activity
