Archival description
CA ON00354 F 0103 · Fonds · 1982-1987

This fonds consists of 31 student projects depicting historical and contemporary features of Southwestern Ontario (primarily Windsor/Essex County but also Sarnia/Lambton County), created by Bachelor of Education (BEd) students in History of Social Studies courses in the 1980s. They take a variety of forms, including illustrated storybooks, scrapbooks, captioned photo albums, reports, lesson plans, activities, or fact sheets. The projects themselves are of variable quality, but the photographs and ephemera included in many projects provide valuable insight into local landmarks or industries in the 1980s. The collection has been arranged into six thematic series: Series I (Overviews by Geographic Area), Series II (Cultural Attractions), Series III (Sociocultural Groups and Histories), Series IV (Local Government), Series V (Business and Industry), Series VI (Transportation).

Warning: The N-word appears in a historical quotation in one project; stereotyped depictions of Indigenous peoples appear in another. See finding aid for details.

This fonds consists of materials supporting two self-guided walking tours that highlight historic architecture and institutions in the former Town of Sandwich (now a part of Windsor, Ontario). Both are undated and do not indicate who created or distributed them. The first is a bilingual brochure entitled "A Walk Through Old Sandwich -- Windsor, Ontario," and is geared toward adults, possibly ca. 1980s-1990s. The second is a stapled 8 1/2 x 11 package entitled "A Field Study of Early Sandwich," possibly ca. 1970s-1980s. This one is designed for teachers leading students, and includes teaching objectives, methods and preparation, the tour stops and suitable questions for each, extended activities, and further references.
