DOCUMENT COLLECTIONS, SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES, TOOLS, et beaucoup plus

LEARN's partner-teachers and consultants have curated many web-based resources, and designed learning activities for the Quebec & Canada History program.  Targeted to program "knowledge" and divided into lessons based on Matt R.s Learning Intentions, these collections can be used in many ways by teachers and students. Also, English versions of some RECITUS tasks have been translated below.

Note: Teachers versions below are linked to their location on the Communauté HistoireGo to site To access Quebec teachers can join via our English registration form.   Student versions without activity suggestions are also available when logged in to LEARN. Go to page
