Description
Students should have some cursory knowledge of World War II prior to doing this activity. The students begin by reading the “Dieppe Raid” essay created by Veterans Canada. The students then watch the video (link provided in the instructions) where veterans of the raid speak about their experiences. The students then complete the questions. You may choose to split this activity in half. You may also choose to covert and combine all files into a single PDF. I am providing a single-point rubric, but this can be easily modified to meet your needs. Please feel free to modify the activity as you see fit. The lesson is meant to evoke students to empathize with the soldiers, and to consider the cost of battles, as well as their signficance.

Description
The Echo Project is about exploring an aspect of 20th century Canadian history through a generational lens. This is done by making a personal connection to the past through interviews and scouring intimate primary documents such as family journals, letters, and photographs as well as what students find with broader research. Students think critically about sources and patterns, develop historical empathy, and get creative with how they represent the past. While many students choose topics related to the World War II era, they may discover they have ties to stories and events before or after the war such as the Great Depression of the 1930s or the Postwar era of the 1950s and 60s.

It includes instructional suggestions for teachers (learn about the strategy, practicing the strategy, independent student activities) and resources for students (data chart, rating scale, student guide, samples and self-assessment rubric). An additional 80 Tools for Thought lessons are available to either individual members of Partner schools, boards and/or districts.

Description
Explorons le droit humanitaire – Campus virtuel : (EDH) est un programme éducatif destiné à sensibiliser les jeunes de 13 à 18 ans aux règles et aux principes essentiels du droit international humanitaire (DIH). Les méthodes d’enseignement utilisées exigent des élèves qu’ils participent activement au processus d’apprentissage. Cela leur permet d’acquérir une « perspective humanitaire » et de bien appréhender une matière aussi austère et complexe que peut le paraître le DIH.

The material offers an introduction to refugee and displacement issues for students in grade 6 and up. The educational resources are the result of a collaborative effort between the graduate school class (summer 2008) of Dr. Jan Stewart, Director of the Institute for War-Affected Children at Global College, University of Winnipeg and Médecins Sans Frontières/ Doctors Without Borders (MSF). The materials were developed based upon an earlier MSF educational publication: “A Refugee Camp in the City, On Assignment” Teachers Guide, MSF Canada (2003). We hope these five lesson plans will encourage students to continue to learn and understand the challenges more than 50 million refugees and internally displaced people face worldwide

This 73 page book covers the history of the Westray Mine disaster and the United Steelworkers lobby efforts to get a law passed that would allow criminal negligence charges against reckless management figures whose decisions kill workers. It concludes with a detailed chapter about the lethal mill fires in BC in 2012 and the ongoing campaign to see the law properly enforced.

Description
There are two parts to this activity. In the first part students will observe two photographs of classrooms, first one historical and then one present day. They will be guided through a class discussion where they will talk about what they notice , what they wonder, and look at similarities and differences between the two. The teacher will make a chart with their observations. The second part of the activity is to provide the students with pictures of historical school supplies and have them make inferences about what they are. They will then be shown books (provided by the teacher) of the school utensils being used so the students can draw conclusions, or they can use the provided pictures to have them draw their conclusions. An English language arts extension of this activity is provided in which the students would complete a word sort activity where they would cut out and match the word with the correct picture. The student would follow up with printing the word underneath.

These lessons investigate how the Aboriginal populations started out having no rights in Canada. Over the years they have won significant court cases giving them dispensations. Many Aboriginal groups have participated in civil disobedience movements that have resulted in major achievements for them and for the environment.

Description
In this activity the students read two newspaper articles about Adolf Hitler's "Knight of the Long Knives" and Joseph Stalin's "The Great Terror" purges. The students need to read the newspaper articles and answer short-answer questions. Students should already have a fairly general knowledge of Hitler and Stalin and be familiar with the concept of “purge.” The newspaper articles may be difficult for some students to comprehend, and this should be a consideration. You may wish to combine the documents into a single PDF to distribute to your students. I provide a single-point rubric, but this can be easily changed.

Description
Students should already have a fairly general knowledge of WWI, the Treaty of Versailles, and the concept of nationalism prior to doing this activity. The students should read the speech (I provide a loose paraphrasing with more accessible language – please feel free to use your name or make your own adaptation). The students can then answer the questions and submit their responses digitally or in hard copy. You may wish to tailor the questions more to specific concepts you are focusing on. The single-point rubric can be easily modified to fit other assessment needs/preferences.
