The Canadian Mosaic
Canada positions itself as a country made up of a cultural mosaic rather than a cultural melting pot; varied elements of ethnicity, culture, racial identity and language living side by side. Join K-16 teachers in this FREE Workshop webinar series, designed to give educators a historic context of elements of the Canadian mosaic, including:
- African-Canadian history – what happened after African-Americans crossed into Canada on the Underground Railroad?
- Indigenous human rights and resilience
- Métis culture – how did this rich culture help build Canada – and the USA?
- Fresh ways to teach Government and Civics
But more than just an overview, each free one-hour webinar – available as a series or stand-alone – will provide tools and resources to help educators effectively and accurately integrate the topics into their curriculum. Go straight from the webinar to your classroom!
