  • Loyalists Learning Stations

    Introduction
    (Curriculum Context - Background Information)

    These learning stations were developed as an interesting activity to introduce History 621 students to topics they will be studying throughout a unit on the Loyalists. They were developed in conjunction with a pre-service teacher who wanted to learn more about resource-based learning approaches.


    General Goals
    (Why are we doing this?)

    Students will be introduced to a broad range of topics and background knowledge about the Loyalists.

    Our pre-service teacher will gain experience in planning and implementing a resource-based learning project in cooperation with the teacher-librarian.
