High-school history teacher Anne McLeod of Nova Scotia visited France this summer to view the battlefields that she has taught students about for years. The tour of Vimy Ridge and other historical sites will help McLeod and others make history lessons more meaningful. "When I show them the tombstone of the 16-year-old Canadian who died over there — he's younger than some of the kids in that class will be — and the 19-year-old and the 20-year-old ... I can make it so much more personal," McLeod said.
