Socials 10-3: The Chinese in early B.C. history

We started the day by examining the ups and downs of the town of Barkerville from boom town to ghost town to tourist town.  We used the history of Barkerville to address other broader ideas.  For example, the effects of transient populations on a community and the effect prosperity has on a community's demographic composition (ex. men, women and children or just single men).  Next, we read a short section in the text, pp.235-238, and then used the following links to start an investigation into the Chinese experience in B.C.

We closed the class by watching an episode from the People's History and then debriefing.  Here is my sketchnote:

There is no homework.
