Canada’s History Archive featuring The Beaver

Please note: Some items featured in our newsletters and social media will include links to the Canada’s History Archive. The Beaver magazine was founded, and for decades was published, during eras shaped by colonialism. Concepts such as racial, cultural, or gender equality were rarely, if ever, considered by the magazine or its contributors. In earlier issues, readers will find comments and terms now considered to be derogatory. Canada’s History Society cautions readers to explore the Archive using historical thinking concepts — not only analyzing the content but asking questions of who shaped the content and why.

Juno75 educational resources from Defining Moments Canada

AN item from Canada’s History magazine.

Canada's History
On the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, Defining Moments Canada is honoured to offer educators around the country a series of FREE educational resources to help their students think critically about commemoration and the legacy of this defining Canadian moment. With the goal of having students create their own digital commemoration, our veteran interviews, inquiry-based lesson plans, storytelling resources, and vast array of supplementary material will have your students delving deeper than ever into D-Day and its implications for the people – and country – that lived it.

Get started with our curated list of veteran interviews, which feature 21 stories from veterans of all backgrounds. Alongside each video, you’ll find biographies, further information on their war service, and additional resources such as war diaries, archival photos and footage, infographics, statistics, and much more. We hope these will inspire your students to begin their own research into a “microhistory” of a remarkable man or woman who contributed, at home or abroad, to the success of D-Day.

Next, take a look at our dedicated educational resources: four lesson plans, created in collaboration with The Critical Thinking Consortium, as well as veteran research tips and resources for creating great stories using our 7 Sentence Story Structure. These resources provide both structure and guidance in the creation of your students’ digital commemorations.

Finally, get your students started on their own digital commemoration: they can create one using the resources above, and submit it to tzamozdra@canhist.ca for a chance to be featured on our website.

Defining Moments Canada will be collecting and sharing YOUR digital commemorations and veteran stories as of May 6th – get in touch, and help us build a national mosaic of Canadian service during the Second World War.
