Description
The Canadian Letters and Images Project is an online archive of the Canadian war experience, from any war, as told through the letters and images of Canadians themselves. Begun in August 2000, the Project is located in the Department of History at Vancouver Island University. Through the digitization of contemporary letters, diaries, photographs, and other related materials, the Project permits Canadians to tell their story, and Canada’s story, through their own words and images. The Teacher's Guide contains 12 English Language Arts and Social Studies lessons that support curricular competencies associated with historical thinking.

Description
In this lesson, students will examine the service records of young William Wood of St. Marys Ontario, to determine what they can know and infer about his experience in the war. They will then examine a narrative that a family member wrote about William’s war experience and use it to consider how historians create narratives from historical evidence.
