Summary"The teacher's guide provides teachers and students with historical background materials in the form of summaries, timelines, glossaries, bibliographies and videographies as well as suggestions for classroom activities. The unique feature of this guide is its artifact driven approach. Teachers will find the kinds of hands-on documentary evidence needed to support student learning about the aftermath of war and Canadian immigration policies, in the form of: photos, orphan identification cards, correspondence from Canadian politicians concerning the immigration of Jews and other ethnic groups, steam ship tickets, a Chinese head tax, and a Japanese internment card."
