This course will explore the history and modern politics of Canada and the World since 1914. How the growth of Canada, with its ever forming identity and the current structure of its government has been developed internally and by the world around it. Students will learn about documents such as The Indian Act and how colonialism impacted, and continues to impact, the First Peoples of this land. After understanding the basics of Canada’s past and present, the course will travel around the globe and learn about World War II and the Cold War. Students will explore how these seemingly far off events from the past continue to impact contemporary life.
This exciting course will enable students to gain credits towards Socials 10.
Your Educator – Charlie Wu
Charlie has been in love with life and learning since 2004, when a very special teacher in his grade 3 class introduced him to the works of Roald Dahl upon noticing that he did’?t like books very much. After that moment, Charlie’s life changed in trajectory. He became fascinated with almost every subject at school, especially English. Later on, he would graduate from UBC with a double degree in Psychology and English Literature, all the while still being in love with life and learning. He has been teaching for over 5 years, and much of what he knows to be important in the world he has learned from children. His favorite things to discuss include theoretical psychology, poetry, and the history of science. If you ask Charlie what his favorite book is, he would probably give you a different answer every time. In the past, the answers have included Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Norwegian Wood, and Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus. Ultimately, Charlie looks forward to teaching and learning about anything and everything at BrainBoost
