Canada’s Participation in the Korean War:

Inquiry, Historical Thinking, and Action

Learn about our shared histories and help your students build bridges across Canada and the world through these innovative Korean War inquiries developed by teachers for Canadian classrooms.The inquiries include all of the primary and secondary sources that students need to engage in the compelling questions through a series of formative tasks and include extension ideas to help students take informed action in their own school or community.

All lessons are available in draft form, and will be in print and online in both French and English for teachers across Canada by summer 2023.

This project is generously supported by the Korean War Veterans of Canada Association, Senator Yonah Martin, our American partners at the Korean War Legacy Foundation, C3 Teachers (College, Career, Civic Life) and the National Council for the Social Studies, the Academy of Korean Studies and the Embassy of Korea (Korean Cultural Centre) in Ottawa.
