Want to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday but dread teaching middle school History? Make lessons for your students more meaningful and relevant by introducing this script from my collection of short, historical-fiction screenplays written for young Canadians! Whether your students act them out, or simply take turns reading the parts, setting a dramtic storyline within an actual event is likely to entertain the most apathetic of pre-teens and adolescents, giving them an appreciation of their country's fascinating past!
This is the third of six available screenplays!
