July 9-14, come join UBC Faculty of Educationís 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 UBCís Dr. Peter Seixas and other distinguished guests. Field trips will enhance the work conducted during the in-class portion of the institute.
