Course Overview

How did God shape Canada through historical events and the people involved and through the unique geographical factors which are “Canada”? Students will use the textbook Connections Canada (Oxford publishers) as a base for introducing and understanding the story of Canada’s early development and First Nations peoples. A variety of learning activities and responses will encourage students to empathize with the people who experienced these events and to express their learning in assignments and in actions.

In this course students will develop skills in;

  • Inquiry: Inquiry is encouraged, valued and required in this course. Students will be inspired to ask questions and follow lines of inquiry that they are curious about.
  • Critical Thinking: Throughout the course critical thinking will be a focus as students are encouraged to consider evidence of God’s hand in history.
  • Research skills: extending inquiry by using video, guided online searches
  • Presentation skills: Students will share their learning through graphs, tables, maps, writing and visual presentations
