Our Resources

Learn more about Facing History’s pedagogical approach and access our resources and professional development opportunities for teachers.

By integrating the study of history, literature, and human behaviour with ethical decision-making and innovative teaching strategies, our work enables teachers to promote students’ historical understanding, critical thinking, and social-emotional learning. As students explore the complexities of history, and make connections to current events, they reflect on the choices they confront today and consider how they can make a difference. 

Facing History's Approach

Our unique approach combining pedagogy, classroom resources, professional development and ongoing support equips teachers with the tools and strategies they need to help students become thoughtful, responsible citizens.
