Lesson PlansThe New Brunswick Museum and the New Brunswick Department of Education e-Learning group encourage educators to use "Saint John: an Industrial City in Transition" virtual exhibition, as a learning resource with their students. The objective of the project was to produce a virtual exhibition of approximately 500 images, consisting of both archival documents and photographs from the mid 1800's to the current time, expressing the theme of Saint John: an industrial city in transition. The exhibit is contextualized in a form that shows how the images are of significant importance to Canadian history, particularly for the benefit of Canadian youth and students.

In order to provide a model for teachers interested in using this content, middle and high school educators representing all districts in the province of New Brunswick developed a learning resource related to a curricular area, adding a local spin to their submissions. Educators from outside of the Saint John area are now able to see connections between local communities in transition and the themes represented in this exhibition.

These learning resources all meet New Brunswick curriculum outcomes and represent a variety of approaches to teaching and learning. Curriculum areas include graphic art and design, grade 6 to 9 social studies, sociology, grade 11 history, media studies, English language arts, grade 12 history and middle school technology education.

All learning resources are created using Microsoft Word in order that teachers can edit and change them to meet the individual needs of their school, students and teaching styles. Learning resources include unit plans, individual lessons and links to student exemplars.
