This note-taking exercise is based on readings from Canada's War Museum website. Unlike most high school texts, which often fail to deliver all the battles in an appropriate context, the material in this exercise has been assembled in such a way that allows students to appreciate how each battle contributed to the next. Students begin this assignment by examining thirteen battles on the museum's website. The following battles are included: the Second Battle of Ypres, the Battle of Festubert, Battle of St. Eloi, the Battle of Mount Sorrel, the Battle of the Somme, Courcelette, the Battle of Vimy Ridge, Hill 70, Passchendaele, the exploits of the Siberian Expeditionary Force, the Battle of Amiens, Arras and Canal de Nord, and the Liberation of Mons. Next, students are required to describe them and explain their overall significance in the course of the First World War and/or in Canadian history. The address of the website has been included at the end of the exercise for quick and easy reference.
