Rebellions of 1837-38

Under construction.

Presently we are building texts, materials and student activities considering guiding questions like "Were the British the “Friendly Conquerors”?" and "To what extent do we owe allegiance to our government? "  

Students will learn to describe the main events of the Rebellions in Lower Canada, to describe the main events of the Rebellions in Upper Canada, and to compare and contrast the Rebellions in Upper and Lower Canada. Student site section not yet available.
