"Primary Document Analysis - Stage 1" is designed to make your students comfortable with extracting the basic elements of a variety of primary documents. To a certain degree the students must have a good understanding of inferencing and an ability to make connections to between the text and the world around them.
"Primary Document Analsysis - Stage 3" is designed to enable the student to go above and beyond in their examination of primary documents to ask questions that synthesize the information that they gather to answer high-level questions that are not always directly answered by a document. This includes why the document was produced, what the document can tell us about life in Canada during the wars, and what questions the document leaves the student with.
"Primary Document Analysis - Stage 2" builds on the inquiry skills learned with "Stage 1," adding the ability to identify the document's intended audience, and to determine the important themes in a chosen primary document.
