Who Were the RMR Soldiers? Building Digital Profiles

Students have researched and reflected upon the challenges for all Canadians after the end of WWI. Students will now create digital profiles of the RMR men who served in WWI. They will research their duties during the war and their lives after the war, if they survived. Students will create a one-page profile of the RMR soldier using a Word template or Pages on a Mac. Students will email their work to the teacher. The teacher can then email the student work to the RMR to catalogue student work. See student handout for full details.
