Getting competitive in history class

Apr. 27, 2018 | Mr. Courchesne’s Form V classroom was a bit more competitive this week than your average history class.
 
With an exam coming up next week, Mr. Courchesne sought out a more fun way to help students study Quebecois and Canadian history. His solution? To turn a quiz into a competition. Students were split into teams and made to compete for fame and glory (or at the very least, a better understanding of the course material). Photos of famous figures, significant literature, and musical recordings were shown to students as they worked together to identify the cultural icons and recall the missing information.
 
Although there may not have been a prize for the winning team, Mr. Courchesne said that having a deeper understanding of Quebec culture is the best prize of all.
