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 version of some RECITUS tasks have been translated below.

Note: Teachers versions (Google Docs) are shared on the Communauté HistoireGo to site Quebec teachers can join via our English registration form.  Student versions without guides are also available when logged in. Go to page
