As with the first version, the VH 2.0 presents a series of engaging historical investigations on key topics and issues in Canadian history. Each activity is meant to develop historical thinking and critical literacy skills.
These various history “cases” are presented in two different format: public lesson and members' lesson.
- Public lessons (formerly known as "single lesson") are free lessons designed for an interactive application of a short online investigation. They can be completed within one 75-minutes period in class with an interactive smartboard or in a computer lab.
- Members' lessons (formerly known as "comprehensive lessons") present vast and detailed investigations in history. Available to members, they provide authentic multiple, conflicting primary and secondary sources in a media rich environment. They support the development of advanced historical thinking and literacy competencies.
With the new “Lesson builder,” teachers can adapt or change every single VH lesson to meet their course planning or particular learning outcomes. These custom-made lessons become part of the teacher’s “My Lessons” folder.
All lessons created by teachers can shared with colleagues. The “Shared Lessons” folder allows you to copy and use creative lessons designed by your colleagues.
