In Rebellions, we explore the social, economic, cultural, and political make-up of the scattered British colonies. We note the various colonial groups and the division of the society into "ins" and "outs." We investigate the major issues of the day that demanded government action and resolution.
Rebellions charts the tumult of the pre-confederation political scene and the twisted path from rebellion to reform and finally, responsible government. Students are invited to participate in this exciting world through a series of History in Action activities designed to bring the past to life.
Readers have the opportunity to understand that the inherited changes of the past play a role in shaping the choices of the future.
Like other titles in this series, the book is based on and carefully linked to the popular CBC/Radio-Canada series Canada: A People's History, available to schools across the country on video and DVD.
