Socials 10-4: Finishing the Conferences
Today we watched the last three short episodes of the People's History. We had some key discussions and saw how politics can have many layers; I'm thinking here of the Macdonald - Cartier - Tilley - Grand Trunk Railway financiers arrangement. I collected the mini-paragraphs from yesterday and assigned our final unit activity - a sketchnote of a multi-paragraph piece highlighting a key aspect or component of our study of the 1860s and the road to Confederation. I am not giving you a test. There is no homework (unless you wish to get started). Thanks for your continued enthusiasm.
