A reminder of what we have gone over in class this week...
- We completed our examination of BC labour history & and also looked at major labour events in Canada including the Winnipeg General Strike.
- We shifted gears and began researching the primary resources of British Columbia - both historically and presently (Fishing, Forestry and Mining). You were split into groups where you read through sources and examined pictures. We then presented our findings to the class.
- Last class, we took this information and we went to the library where you began your "post card" writing assignment on one of these resources. Your expected to give background information on your resources, the advantages/disadvantages of the resource.
Next week we will be discussing writing and citing strategies to include in your writing work and begin looking more deeply at immigration history to BC.
Have a good weekend.
