Teacher Resource Guide
War and Commemoration through explorations of Historical and Contemporary Art in Canada
War and conflict have wreaked havoc on the history of what we now call Canada for centuries. This Teacher Resource Guide introduces the work of three creators to facilitate deep learning about conflict and commemoration: A.Y. Jackson (1882–1974); Molly Lamb Bobak (1920–2014); and Adrian Stimson (b.1964). From explorations of empathy to examinations of the persuasive command of visual media, the learning activities in this guide—adaptable to any historical or contemporary era—invite students to immerse themselves in the power of war art to communicate, persuade, and commemorate.
