Teaching Resources

In association with the Faculty of Arts and the Department of History at Wilfrid Laurier University, the Laurier Centre for Military, Strategic and Disarmament Studies (LCMSDS) offered a brand new course in digital and military history during the Winter term in 2015 and 2016. The major term project required students to work collaboratively on short documentaries that explore various aspects of the Canadian experience at war during the twentieth century.

The documentaries produced by the students were of such high quality that the Faculty of Arts decided to use them as a base to develop teaching resources for secondary school classrooms. All lesson plans make use of the documentaries produced by the students. Please click the links below for lessons plans and supplementary materials.

The documentaries can be accessed at these two links:
