What’s New in Nunavut History Education? | The History Education Network

Via Scoop.itNunavut

[excerpt] As the newest member of the THEN/HIER graduate student committee, I am looking forward to sharing thoughts and stories about education and history from Canada’s North. I would like to begin by introducing a recent history curriculum initiative in Nunavut, which is in fact part of the reason I was inspired to pursue my doctorate in education. Staking the Claim: Dreams, Democracy & Canadian Inuit is a required grade 10 social studies module, published in 2009, that examines the history of Inuit land claims across Canada. As this first entry will not provide enough space to explore it fully, this will be the first of several comments on what I view as the most exciting made-in-Nunavut curriculum module to date!
