Doukhobors make good Canadians

In this critical challenge, students review background information (accessed online) about the Doukhobor community that was persecuted in Canada in the early twentieth century. After determining criteria for a good citizen, students apply the criteria as they examine primary source documents to find evidence to support the position that Doukhobors were good Canadian citizens. Students write a persuasive letter to the Minister of Immigration, arguing this position.
