This curriculum is designed to have students engage critically with this digital archive. It is guided by the Ontario Ministry of Education’s curriculum expectations for grade 10, within five courses.

There are three lessons for each of the five grade 10 courses; each set of three lessons form an arc culminating in a summative task tied to course expectations.

While these subject-specific lesson arcs are designed for grade 10 courses, they can be adapted to use with students in grades 8 to 12.
