Historical Thinking Project 2012 Summer Institute
In July 2012, join UBC Faculty of Education’s week-long Historical Thinking Project Summer Institute. This immersion program will take you on an exploration of historical thinking, while examining the themes of immigration and aboriginality. As well, the program will look at the broader substantive theme of cultural exchange across borders.
The six historical thinking concepts — which have been integrated into a number of curriculum documents, including the forthcoming, revised Canadian and World Studies documents in Ontario — will provide the methodological core of the program. Plenary lectures will be presented by UBC’s Dr. Peter Seixas and other distinguished guests. Field trips will enhance the work conducted during the in-class portion of the institute.
Claborate with history teachers, curriculum leaders, and museum educators from across Canada for an exciting immersion experience being held at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE).
The Summer Institute takes place July 9-14, 2012. Seats are limited, early registration is recommended. Register By: Monday, April 16, 2012.
