News from the Nest - Nov. 8-12

Spotlight on Learning:  Letters Home WW1

In Social Studies 10 this semester, students made the First World War, 1914-18, come alive through a dedicated mix of primary source research and historical perspective taking as we questioned how Canadian soldiers experienced the war.  Students spent days studying Canada's experience of the war and then combed through a massive Canadian online database of actual soldiers' letters that were sent during the war.  The Canadian Letters and Images Project holds an amazing collection of primary source evidence and led students on a journey of historical discovery as they incorporated evidence of what they had researched into a new, unique letter, creatively written but grounded in historical fact, from the perspective of a Canadian soldier writing home to loved ones from the front lines in France.  Students wrote moving, historically accurate accounts of the often-numbing brutality but also mundane banality of the war.  They wrote in a way that conveyed a sincere empathy to the experiences of veterans and the sacrifices they made for Canada.  This Remembrance Day, these students will have a brand new, deep, and deeply historical, understanding of the unique, often harrowing challenges that our soldiers faced as they fought for Canada in one of the most brutal wars in human history.
