Next, we watched a segment of the People's History and then debriefed and discussed the influences at work on westward expansion after Confederation. I asked students to ensure they had a few "bullet notes" from the video and we shared in turn; I tried to add some colour commentary and background information where it seemed appropriate. Finally, I reviewed the idea of using transition words (what I call "signpost" words) in your writing. Here are my notes for both. There is no homework if you've completed your Northwest Rebellion reading.
