Memories of War: Lesson Plan

Type: Document

This lesson invites students to think critically about the way in which we memorialize war. Starting with the concept of a war memorial, students analyze a series of war memorials drawn from diverse historical contexts, and interpret some of the fundamental messages encoded within monuments. Students also conduct independent research into Canadian war memorials and their messages, ultimately crafting their own war memorial based on their choice of a significant Canadian person, place or event related to World War I, II, or the Korean War.
