This EduKit provides opportunities for students to “explore local/regional history” (that is likely of personal interest) and asks them to utilize the “methods and skills of history as a discipline”. In so doing, it is intended that the knowledge and understanding they gain will reinforce their “pride in their cultural identity and heritage”.

La trousse éducative procure aux élèves des occasions « d’apprendre à propos de l’histoire locale ou régionale » (qui peut présenter un intérêt personnel) et qui leur permet d’utiliser des « méthodes et des compétences propres à l’étude de l’histoire ». La connaissance et la compréhension qu’ils en tireront seront de nature à susciter « une fierté d’appartenance à leur identité culturelle ».

This EduKit forms part of an online educational virtual exhibit that examines the history of Fort Point as a military location and its importance to the community, with a specific focus on the period leading up to and the time of the War of 1812 between Canada and the United States. This online educational component will assist the larger intent of the project: to preserve the local history of the former fort and light house station for our local youth while also informing the world about the history of this site and encouraging visitors to Trinity.

La trousse éducative fait partie d’une exposition virtuelle en ligne qui relate l’histoire de Fort Point à titre d’emplacement militaire dont elle fait valoir l’importance pour la communauté, en ciblant particulièrement la période précédant et durant la Guerre de 1812 entre le Canada et les États-Unis. Cette composante en ligne est en complément d’un projet dont le but est plus large : la mise en valeur de l’histoire de l’ancienne fortification et du phare auprès de la jeunesse locale tout en informant plus largement des visiteurs éventuels à propos de l’histoire de ce site et de l’intérêt de visiter Trinity.
