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 online in both French and English for teachers across Canada. The print book will be distributed at member association conferences in the 2023-2024 school year,

 

This project would not have been possible without the generous support of our many partners including:
