Question 6: What purpose does film serve in the history classroom or in the telling of history?

            Some people may say that films are just films, and they are just for entertainment. However, I believe that films serve the purpose of going into people’s minds automatically, and especially when they want to study, they are very effective. Films are something that people have watched definitely at least once in their lives. Films are somehow related to our lives. We sometimes watch them for fun, but sometimes they are for studying.

School system: why does the Dutch sytem work better than Quebec's

English

In Quebec, the school system is rather unique. After highschool, it is a totally different way than most countries, and the question we should ask ourselves is: does different mean better? I do no think that having a different school system is a nuisance, although Quebec's system is not excellent either.

What purpose does film serve in the history classroom or in the telling of history?

English

For me personally, film can serve as a major tool in learning or telling history in a classroom setting. There are things lectures and slideshows are simply incapable of accomplishing that a film can accomplish on a regular basis.

We can imagine this because we have all been there at one time or another.

Japanese School System

English

As read from a Japanese writer,the Japanese school system is very different from america's. Students spend more time at school in Japan, as they have 3 semesters instead of 2 like us. They also have longer semesters, and less vacations. In fact, bet ween all three semesters, they get 6 weeks of vacation in the summer, and 2 weeks between each semester(winter and spring break). Most of the time, even though these are "vacations", students are loaded with homework.

The Reality of Rural Living and the Effects on the Education Systems

English

On Jan. 22, 2017, Kristin Rushowy wrote an article for the Toronto Star on a rural school in Ontario closing because there were not enough students to be able to stain the building itself. This occurrence is resulting in many families having to send their kids to another school, which happens to be a lot farther than the other school. Some children now have to travel about an hour and a half to get to school.
