This class explores Canada and the world from 1919 to the present. We learn about both Canadian and Indigenous institutions and governance, then consider the role of ideology in the development of public policy, in World War Two and the Cold War. In exploring Canadian autonomy and identity, we examine Canadian culture and experiences of inclusion and multiculturalism but also of racism and discrimination. We also consider the relationships between Quebec and “the rest of Canada,” between Canada and the world, and between Indigenous peoples and settlers, ending with a look at truth and reconciliation. Throughout, students are expected to participate in classroom discussions; adopt historical roles; explore their ideas with research; present their findings through a variety of media; and polish their written communication.
