Communities in Canada, Past and Present: Part 5 – A Land of Many Perspectives is the fifth part of a full unit bundle to support the revised 2018 Ontario Social Studies Curriculum strand of the same name for Grade 6. Each is sold as a separate resource, as well as being part of the bundle.
A translated version of this Part 5 resource is available for French Immersion classrooms: Communities in Canada, Past and Present (FRENCH VERSION), Part 5
This resource supports students as they learn about the many different perspectives that communities issues involve. They will identify, analyse and evaluate perspectives on issues in the following communities:
• The immigrant community of Winnipeg during the Great Depression
• Present-day Attawapiskat and other Northern Canadian communities
• The Japanese-Canadian community during World War II
• The community of Africville, Nova Scotia during the 20th century
Students will participate in a series of debates on controversial topics within these communities, identifying opposing perspectives as they challenge one another. They will also gather and evaluate primary and secondary source material to assist them as they look at these issues from multiple points of view.
