Let students explore this page of the website or pre-assign Reading: Internment in Canada. Students also study the corresponding Map.

In pairs (or, as computers permit, individually or in groups), students view Video: Internment in Canada, which features internees speaking about the administration and conditions of the Canadian internment camps. Students should watch the video twice; on the first viewing, students watch and listen carefully, while on the second viewing, students should note the anecdotes described by the interviewees.

Students discuss their notes in pairs or small groups, commenting on what they found most interesting or surprising.
