Teaching Canadian Social Studies?

June 16, 2017 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Are you teaching Canadian Social Studies? Check out the free resources on the The Critical Thinking Consortium page – amongst others, they have a set of free 35 background brief documents in the following 3 categories:

  1. Country/Region Profiles
  2. Development Issues and Efforts
  3. Historic injustices and redress in Canada

These were new to me which is why I am mentioning them here.  Needless-to-say  there are m-a-n-y other resources for social studies teachers including OESSTA (for elementaries), Canadian Museum of History , The Canadian Encylopedia, the Canadiana Discovery Portal just to name of few. Don’t forget to check out the great resources (e-books, links, databases) on the TDSB Virtual Library (go to Search and refine your search by Grade, Resource Type, and Subject) and this document created by the Professional Library Websites Supporting K-12 Canadian Social Studies (http://goo.gl/uxW3l5).
