Explorations in Social Studies 11 is a course that looks at life in Canada from several angles: Government and Politics, Society and Identity, Autonomy and International Development and Human Geography. Events that have led up to Canada’s move from a colony of Britain to an independent country are a major focus of this course. The impact of these events on the citizens of Canada, those emigrating to Canada, and the Aboriginal people who occupied the land before contact will also be studied.
