Grade 11 History of Canada (30F)

The Grade 11 History of Canada (30F) curriculum supports citizenship as a core concept and engages students in historical inquiry. Guided by Essential Questions, students focus on the history of Canada from pre-contact times to the present. Through this process students think historically and acquire Enduring Understandings related to the following five themes in Canadian history:

  1. First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Peoples
  2. French-English Duality
  3. Identity, Diversity, and Citizenship
  4. Governance and Economics
  5. Canada and the World

Historical Thinking Concepts and Skills, based on the work of Dr. Peter Seixas of the University of British Columbia, are embedded throughout the curriculum and provide a foundation for historical inquiry.

Student Text, Teacher’s Guide, and Other Resources to Support the Curriculum
Shaping Canada is the student text (and corresponding teacher’s resource) created specifically for this curriculum. Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning has also created a poster that graphically displays the curriculum components of the Grade 11 History of Canada course, including the Enduring Understandings, Essential Questions, and Historical Thinking Concepts. These items are all available for purchase from the Manitoba Learning Resource Centre (stock numbers: student text #10391; teacher’s resource #13032). Copies of the poster were delivered to Manitoba high schools in June 2011. Additional copies are available for purchase at the MLRC (stock #80671), or may be downloaded at the link below.
