Unit 1: 1900-1928 – Forming an Identity in a New Century


Time: 20 hours

Description

In this unit, students are introduced to the methods of historical inquiry and to some of the major challenges Canada faced in the period 1900-1928. Students examine the development of a Canadian identity through the contributions of various individuals and groups, inside and outside Canada. Issues such as immigration, technological change, French-English relations, conscription, the role of women in society, and the role of labour in the economy are studied and discussed. Students respond to moral issues in the light of Gospel values such as tolerance, peace, and social justice. A student- created scrapbook on the period 1900-1928 is the unit's culminating activity.

In this unit, students examine the economic, technological, cultural, social, and political changes that occurred in Canada immediately after World War II and continued into the 1960s. They also discover the growth of Canada as a middle-power on the international stage. The activities in this unit help the students to recognize the importance of certain themes in Canadian history such as Canadian and American relations. To develop skills used in historical inquiries students create a scrapbook that documents the significant economic, social, and political changes that occurred in Canada during the "baby boom" years. In this unit, students are expected to recognize the need to foster a society that is focussed on social justice and personal responsibility.

This unit focusses on the challenges that faced Canada as the nation witnessed the transition from the minority government of Lester Pearson to the Just Society of Pierre Trudeau. The activities help students understand the response of the Federal government and the Canadian people to the separatist movement in Quebec. They analyse the changing social and demographic patterns in Canada with specific reference to its Aboriginal communities and major immigrant groups. They summarize Canada’s efforts to protect the human rights of all Canadians. Students use the Catholic faith tradition to analyse American popular culture’s impact on Canada as well as the claim of a Just Society. The culminating activity requires students to research and evaluate information on prime ministers Pearson and Trudeau from a variety of sources and communicate their findings in formal written reports and oral presentations.
