View other films or sources on Quebec City and make a class list of local attractions a driver might show his clients today, and have students make a pamphlet or commercial.  If you were a "calèche" driver in your city or town, what would you show your clients? Ask, why does the modern city of Quebec still have "calèche" drivers?  Create a timeline of significant events in Canada's oldest city. Students write a parody on a daily activity, such as getting ready for school or making a meal, in the style of the film narration.
