This period marks the rise of Socialism, the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation, and new social welfare policies. In keeping with the course's larger themes, this unit also addresses the issue of Canadian identity and sovereignty with the introduction of the Statute of Westminster WWII was the deadliest conflict in human history. This, in addition to the mass slaughter of civilians during this time, led to massive social, political, and economic changes in Canada, and throughout the world.
International organizations were implemented to make sure atrocities, such as the Holocaust, would never occur again. Citizens felt entitled to more rights and a higher standard of living after what they had contributed to their country.
This led to the formation of many human rights organizations, and the implementation of new social welfare policies. This unit examines in greater depth the social, political and cultural themes from the previous unit. During this era, racist policies were removed from immigration orders, the fight for equal pay for women began in earnest, and status Aboriginals were finally given the right to vote without having to give up being status Aboriginals.
Refugees, once turned away from Canada's borders, entered by the hundreds of thousands. However, despite these improvements to human rights, conflict continued. The Cold War started immediately after WWII between western capitalist democracies and eastern communist dictatorships, both sides testing nuclear bombs in Korea, Vietnam and elsewhere. This unit deals with the era in Canada that spans Trudeau's time as Prime Minister with an interlude in of Joe Clark's premiership. Canada was forever changed directly by Trudeau's changes, like his policies on bilingualism, multiculturalism and environmentalism.

However, history is about more than memorizing facts: history is about telling a story, making choices, and weighing evidence. In this mini-unit, we will explore some of the ways historians make choices, and how their choices affect the stories they tell, and ultimately the way we understand our past. The Laurier Report Card is the first mini-assignment for this course. Please complete it at home if you missed a class, and turn it in as soon as possible. Up until now you have studied the history of people who lived so long ago and so differently from you, that you may have thought history had no relevance to you or your life.
You may find that the people we will study will be more like you than you ever imagined they would be. Over the course of the year, each academic Canadian history student will research and analyse the contribution of one key figure to Canadian history, identity and culture.

The evaluation for this unit is a thesis paragraph in which students must argue whether Canada's history during the Twentieth Century was one of continuity or one of change.
While one class period will be alloted for researching the relevant themes in the textbook, students will be expected to complete this assignment at home. In August tensions brewing in Europe for almost a century came to a head with the assassination of the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne. Canada, by virtue of our relationship to Britain, was forced into a European war not of its own making or design. Even though Canada had not played a role in starting the war, the war affected our fledgling nation of just over 7 million souls socially, culturally, politically, and economically in profound ways.
The war changed Canada and its role on the international stage and at home in ways more profound than any other event since Confederation. Throughout this unit, we will examine the war, its causes, and its battles, and its effects on Canada at home and abroad, with a focus on the effects on a various minority groups. The following resources will be used in class or may be helpful to students who miss class time.
This portion of the unit will be taught primarily through lecture and Socratic-style discussion. Students are strongly encouraged to use graphic organizers to take ntoes in class. Graphic organizers: a offer more visual notes for those students who are visual learners, and b give students an opportunity to consider the significance of the information they are recording, rather than focus on information for information's sake. Students will be responsible for the "Pre-War Crises article" and graphic organizer for homework.
Part B - Trench Warfare. For this portion of the unit, students will be given one of four readings and a graphic organizer to complete. Once they have read and recorded the information from their reading, they will then work with the other members of their class pods to extend their learning by exchanging information and recording what their peers have learned.
The power point posted below contains some of the same information as the readings. Viweing the power point in not mandatory, but students who miss class should use the power point to help them know what is important for this segment of the unit.
As you watch, pay attention to details that tell you more about what the war was like: the use of passenger pigeons, for example, to carry messages; the treatment of Aboriginal soldiers; the heroism of Canadian soldiers, who were used as canon fodder by the British.I think the Treaty had a big effect on the events leading up to WWII because it made Germany feel less empowered allowing Adolf Hitler to get involved saying that he would get back what they lost and empower them once again.
Hitler pushed his luck and his power to far and countries like Britain didn't like that. I believe that Hitler was an influencial young man during the Treaty of Versailles. He would have seen what happened to Germany during the Treaty and how they got most of the blame. He was a nationalistic young man and would have wanted Germany to be what they once were. I think the cause of WWII because of the treaty, Hitler wanted all the land they lost in world war 1.
This one of the main reasons why any country goes to war. The Treaty of Versailles left Germany feeling weak. Germany was left with most of the blame for the first world war. Hitler's promise was to get Germany's pride back after the war, but at the same time Hitler blamed the Jews for Germany's financial situation.
I believe the Treaty of Versailles was the main cause for the second world war. If it wasn't for Germany's loss of pride and dignity, Hitler might not have gone to such extremes.
Sorry if my information is not accurate. Germans were feeling less powerful after the a peace treaty, and they needed someone who brought them back to the top. They did not have their voices heard during the Treaty of Versailles, and they got everything taken away from them, and they would have done anything to gain it all back.
You guys need to watch more history channel. Hitler promised to get them out of the depression. Soon when he got into power he decided to change their constitutions to give him supreme power over everything in Germany. It's not the treaty itself that caused the war, it is the crippling coming after it since all the money and economy took a turn straight down depression ally.
When Hitler started taking back land and breaking the treaty, no country wanted to step in which just let him take over other countries and continue his war path. Don't tell me I have to write it again Because Germany did not have a voice in the formation of the Treaty of Versailles, they felt powerless. Therefore, Hitler began to rebuild Germany's pride by trying to claim back their land Eg. Rhineland even with a weak army. The German's did not get a say in the making of the Treaty of Versailles therefore making it all that easier for the other participating countries to make agreement that were not at all in favour of the Germans.
In my opinion, WW2 really started the minute Hitler came into power because it was always his intentions to get revenge on the other countries because of what had previously occurred with the treaty. The Treaty of Versailles was the reason behind all of Germany's misfortunes after the first world war; they lost a great deal of land and had to pay for the damages caused during the war.
This of course put Germany in a huge economic depression. So when Hitler began promising the German citizens that he would make sure Germany regained all of its land, money, and honour that was lost after the treaty, the citizens of Germany were more than extatic to follow and support him.WW2 - OverSimplified (Part 1)
If the German citizen's did not live such poor quality lives after the treaty was signed, they might not have supported Hitler as strongly. Without all of the power Germany fed Hitler, he would not have been able to do half of the things that he did. As a result, WW2 could have been avoided. Just a btw. Appeasement only happened because the other countries felt bad for Germany's cicumstances after the treaty.
If the treaty had not been so harsh on Germany, the other countries would not have felt bad for Germany and therefore would not have let Hitler get away with things. I believe that appeasement did not in fact cause the war, it merely postponed it. Grade 10 Academic History Class Period 2.
