LEARN teams have curated hundreds of readily available online materials and aligned them with the knowledge lists in the new Quebec & Canada History program.  Organized into collections, they are structured around Matt Russell's (WQSB) "Learning Intentions" for the entire cycle and include activity suggestions and tools, that can be used in many ways by both teachers and students.
