Today started by seeing what you already knew about this topic. We then watched the People's History clip on Canada joining the war. We learned the importance of Sept. 1, 3 and 10, 1939. We also saw how Canada hoped initially to engage in a limited war, but after the fall of France was Britain's only ally - Go Canada! We had a PPT directed discussion on some of the main causes of the war. Remember, the Second World War is about defeating fascism and imperialism of a very different nature than that of the First World War.
We ended by reading pp. 100-107 in the text. I asked that you create three bullet-points from your reading (be ready to share one tomorrow). I also asked that you develop two questions from the reading and share them onto this blogpost (first names only, please).
