OPPORTUNITY: Teaching History Summer Institute at the University of Winnipeg

The University of Winnipeg and Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning presents: New Perspectives on the History of Women in Canada July 5-6, 2016 at the University of Winnipeg.

This year marks the one hundredth anniversary of women’s suffrage in Manitoba. Many of this province’s women numbered among the first in Canada to win the right to vote. Long before this moment and ever since, women have played a central part in the historical development of Canada. The achievement of women’s suffrage therefore represents a crucial moment in a long chain of struggles and successes that would eventually embrace all women. The 2016 University of Winnipeg-Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning Teaching History Summer Institute celebrates this centenary by exploring this historic landmark using Peter Seixas’ Big Six Historical Thinking Concepts.

Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning encourages teachers from Grades 5 to 12 to participate in this valuable learning experience.
