Social Studies 10: Canadian History

Social Studies 10: Canadian History

Social Studies 10 explores the formative years of Canada’s history including the personalities and events that led us from a confederate to the birth of an independent Canada. Characters, like the visionary Louis Riel to the intractable John A Macdonald, and artifacts like the Group of Seven paintings and the magical story of Paddle to the Sea will contribute our understanding of this earlier time. Learners will uncover the scandal, rebellion, visionaries, technological innovation, and the spirit of possibility that resulted in the independence of Canada against the wishes of our American neighbour and colonial interests. Through video, original-source historical materials, songs, creative film and storytelling, learners will follow the people and unfolding events that resulted in the birth of our country, with an eye to understanding who we are today.
