Today we revisited the idea of examining an event from varied perspectives and added the Government of Canada and the NWMP to our groups associated with the concerns on the Plains in the 1880s. Next, we watched The People's History episode titled "Batoche." From there, we split into groups of four, and collaborated to create a Venn diagram to compare and contrast the Red River Resistance of 1869 and the North West Resistance of 1885. We had a chance to share some of our findings. If you didn't get your reading done yesterday, you got a reprieve, but please come to class with it done for Tuesday. Next class we will use our prewriting to create a paragraph that compares and contrasts these two events. Enjoy the long weekend.
