A - Social Studies 11 - Today we are going to look at the battle of Passchendaele and see the effects on the home front. We will take a look at the crisis surrounding conscription (Military Service Act) and see how that issue divided Canada. We'll also look at the Suffragette movement (Nellie McClung) and the Wartime Elections Act of 1917 that was tied to the Military Voters Act. you'll get three supplemental hand-outs today: "The Conscription Crisis"; "A Country Divided the conscription crisis"; and "The Suffrage Movement women get the vote". Using the handouts, you'll need to work on a casualty / enlistment graph for 1917 in class and work through questions 1 & 3 on page 39 and 1 & 4 on page 42 in your Counterpoints text along with the Reconnect questions 1 & 2 on the handout "The Conscription Crisis".

We'll also look at the arrival of Lord Elgin (1847) and discover why the Rebellion Losses Bill was so controversial yet so important. We'll look at the Corn Laws passed by Britain in 1846 and see the impact that made on the Canadian economy. We'll take a few notes down and work on one question (question 8 from page 31). After it's time to prepare for your unit final tomorrow - I'll prep you for it.
