Library and Archives of Canada Collections as Resources for Classroom Learning
Sly, Gordon
Canadian Social Studies, v40 n1 Sum 2006
This article promotes the online use of primary documents from Library and Archives of Canada (LAC) collections by high school students conducting historical inquiry into a major historic event in Canada's past. It outlines a unit of seven history lessons that the author wrote for the "Learning Centre" at www.collectionscanada.ca/education/indexe. html, a website recently created by LAC. The unit: "Canada and the Cold War: The Gouzenko Affair" offers a variety of student-centered, skill-oriented teaching/learning strategies with supporting online resources. A major criterion for these educational resources is that they fit into the official curricula of each province and territory in Canada.
