Calling all History Teachers & Curriculum Leaders, Museum & Historical Site Educators:
Come join us at UBC this July for a week-long immersion experience that will take you on an exploration of historical thinking!
Benchmarks of Historical Thinking will provide the methodological core of the institute’s work on curriculum, lesson, and exhibit design and development. The “Benchmarks” approach opens up the interpretive nature of history by making explicit and central such fundamental concepts as “primary source evidence,” “historical significance,” and “continuity and change.”
This summer institute is ideal for educators, whether you’re a History teacher or an educator at a museum, as well as many other applications as well.
