History and Citizenship Education - Modernization of Quebec Society (1929-1980)
History and Citizenship Education - Quebec Society Since 1980

Ask students to draw inspiration from the creative process of Robert Lepage and come up with an idea for an architectural projection on the theme of history and the city. Have them choose a location and assemble a bank of images related to that space. Though it is only a simulation, this activity is important in terms of the developmental process: students will be able to explain what fed their choice of imagery in relation to the theme.
