This New France and British North America 1713-1800 Part 1: Concepts of Historical Thinking unit is meant to support the Grade 7 Ontario Social Studies strand of the same name. Part 1 introduces students to five “Concepts of Historical Thinking”, in order to help them think as the young historians they are becoming! The 5 concepts developed in this mini-unit are:
• Historical Significance
• Historical Evidence
• Historical Perspectives
• Cause & Consequence
• Continuity & Change
Each of these concepts is the focus of a lesson plan, with each of the 5 lesson plans including:
• Detailed 3-part lesson plan
• Learning Goal Poster
• Concept of Historical Thinking Poster
The concepts introduced in this unit will be consistently reinforced in future sections of what will eventually be a larger bundle. As this is, indeed, an introduction, some of the material covered in this unit will review material that students may have been exposed to in the Grade 5 unit First Nations and Europeans in New France & Early Canada.
