Canada’s National History Society has launched a new national youth program called #OurStoriesOurVoices. The first stage of the program is focused on sharing educational resources with teachers. This builds momentum to a national contest where students will be invited to select a person, place, event, or thing in their community that they think other Canadians should know about and to share their research and analysis in a creative format.
This is a great opportunity for teachers and students to engage in history and explore the concept of Historical Significance. Thinking about summatives? engaging in local history? honouring student voice? this is a great way to accomplish all of this and more!
