Document collections, suggested activities, evaluations, etc.

LEARN has mapped out and curated many web-based resources and designed learning activities in line with the new Quebec & Canada History program.  Targeted to logical groupings from the program’s prescribed knowledge lists, and based on Matt R.s Curriculum Mapping of Learning Intentions, our collections can be used in many ways by teachers and students. Similarly, English versions of some original RECITUS tasks and evaluations have been adapted and are now also available below.
