The status of women in New France
In this critical challenge, students review background information (accessed online) about the 1734 trial of Angelique, a black slave in Montreal who was accused of starting a fire. Students then gather evidence from primary and secondary source documents to draw inferences about the lives of women during this period in New France and rank order the quality of life of eight women or groups of women living there.
