Grade 10 Social Studies

The Second World War brought rapid change in technology, industry, and social roles. It also brought opportunities for BC women to contribute to the war effort. Through exploration and discovery, students will learn to read primary sources. With primary archival documents, they will discuss the roles that women played in the BC shipbuilding industry and the Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service (Wrens), all while considering the context of the period.
