BC History: The Voice of Working People

The Labour History Project is a joint initiative of the BCSSTA and the Labour Heritage Centre. The LHP has produced a wide variety of teaching materials to support the teaching of BC history from the perspective of working people; the people who built this province. This workshop will introduce teachers to the collection of free print and video materials that can be applied to the teaching of Social Studies 9, 10, BC First Nations 12 and Social Justice 12. A new initiative is to provide the core of our lessons in French; 2 resources will be shared in this session. In addition, there are teaching materials to support instruction on workplace safety, a component of Career-Life Education. The materials of the workshop address the core competencies and learning standards of the new Social Studies curriculum.
