Title: Great Unsolved Mysteries in Canadian History

Description: Project summary: "The overall goal of this project is to create 13 websites, each an archives of primary historical documents about a different unsolved mystery in Canadian history. Each will be an attractive, engaging, and interactive website which will draw high school and university students and life-long learners into the key themes of Canadian history while they are having fun solving the mysteries.


Entertainment is not, however, the most important goal of these sites. As students work their way through the mysteries, they will be engaging the major themes in Canadian history, and learning about all the regions of Canada, and the major ethnic groups in the country. Students will also be developing the complex analytical skills of 'real' historians, identifying, selecting and evaluating the 'evidence' left to us from the past, and incorporating it into a coherent narrative framework of description and explanation. Each site will be available in French and English."


As of 2006-05-01, British Columbia content includes Who Killed William Robinson, We Do Not Know His Name: Klatsassin and the Chilcotin War, and Explosion on the Kettle Valley Line: The Death of Peter Verigin.
