Learning Scenario

The Quebec Act, 1774 (LBPSB)

In 1774, the British abandoned their plans to assimilate the French Canadian colonists in Quebec. They found that assimilation was not going well and that the French refused to adopt their language, customs, and religion, even under the severe laws that had been put in place. They liked their culture and customs and wanted to hold onto them.

This mapping task shared by LBPSB consultant David Emory asks students to trace out the new territories, then as an integration task, students are asked to take the position of a French colonist living in Quebec during this time, and to respond to questions like, "Would you be satisfied with the new laws and freedoms being given by the British? Would it be enough to earn your loyalty?"
