This seminar will provide grade 10 history teachers with content and strategies to help students explore Canada’s social history. We will also introduce participants to Facing History and Ourselves’ unique pedagogical approach which supports inquiry skills and the creation of meaningful learning in the classroom.
We study the past to understand the present and shape the future. We ask, what is Canada? Who is considered Canadian? How do these beliefs impact society and how have they changed over the course of Canada’s history?
In this seminar you will:
Discover new interdisciplinary teaching strategies that reinforce historical thinking and inquiry skills
Explore topics such as Canada’s contemporary identity; continuity and change in our nation’s universe of obligation; Canada’s response to the Holocaust; the history of Canada’s Indian Residential Schools and the call for reconciliation
Receive a free copy of Stolen Lives: The Indigenous Peoples of Canada and the Indian Residential Schools, and Facing History and Ourselves’ new Holocaust and Human Behavior
