CHC 2D 2011: A Changing Society

Today, I want you to create a large infographic that will explain how Canadian culture changed during the 1950s and 1960s. Here are the ground rules:

  • You will work in groups of 4.   I reserve the right to re-organize the groups to suit my fiendish plans
  • You will collaborate on a large infographic about Canadian life in the 1950s/60s.
  • We are going to photocopy the best infographics for your notes; thus, make sure the lines, shapes, and text stand out.
  • While the infographic is a collaborative, unified effort, each person in the group is responsible for one corner of the page.

Your topics are below. Each person in the group is responsible for one topic.

  • The baby boom (pages 202-204)
  • Transformation to a Consumer Society (pages 204-206)
  • Canada Discovers Suburbia (pg 209)
  • The Arrival of the Teenager (pg 211)

Steps to Success

  1. Each person should read his/her section
  2. Briefly explain your topic to your group members
  3. Discuss possible titles, layout, and organization for your infographic.  What title best reflects the all of the changes during this time period? How can these changes be represented through images?
