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, within Canada and without. Issues such as immigration, technological change, French-English relations, conscription, the role of women in society, and the impact of changes in the economy are studied and discussed. Students respond to moral issues in the light of Gospel values. A student-created scrapbook for the period 1900-1928 is the unit's culminating activity.
