Socials 10-3: Red River Paragraph Writing
Today we took all of our research and writing preparation an put it together to compose a paragraph to describe the events associated with 1869-70 Red River Uprising. I mentioned that you can't include all of the details in a one-page paragraph, so you had to analyze the information from your research to decide which elements to include. I suggested that you think of the theme of conflict and threat as it related to each side (the Métis, and the opposition, however you choose to define them - Government? English? Settlers? Orangemen?). I was pleased with the effort and focus with which you tackled this job. Please have a one-page (or so) double-spaced, typed paragraph ready to turn in at the start of the next class.
