This site is not just for students to use to help them make movies about the Battle of Vimy Ridge or some other WWI topic, a significant portion of the materials hosted here are more likely to be useful to a teacher who wants to throw an image, quote, chart, or newspaper headline into a presentation or to find documents students can explore and work with during classroom activities.
One day very soon this page will have real content! At that point it will provide pointers as to what material is here and what it might be used for in terms of reaching certain curricular outcomes.
For example, there is a period in June/July of 2017 during the conscription crisis in Canada when exploring the news headlines in different parts of the country is really instructive. It is one thing to hear that conscription was a ‘hot button’ issue in Quebec and quite another to read the top headlines in a Quebec newspaper with conscription dominating everything else to reading the headlines of papers elsewhere in Canada where conscription got but the odd mention while war news took centre stage.
