The Canadian History of Education Association/Association Canadienne d’histoire de l’éducation (CHEA/ACHÉ) will hold a Teachers’ Day on Saturday, October 15th, 2022, during the association’s biennial conference at the Inn at Laurel Point.

The sponsor for Teachers’ Day is Thinking Historically for Canada’s Future, a major national history education project.

CHEA/ACHÉ and Thinking Historically invite K-12 teachers in public and independent schools to register to attend Teachers’ Day.

Presentations on history education, social studies education, and history of education will be open to teachers to attend. Some of the presentation titles include, “Harvest: A Historical Board Game Program and Why It Works,” “Teaching Indigenous Pasts & Settler Futures at the University Museum,” “How Do Government Consultations Affect Curriculum Change? Indigenous & Francophone Perspectives in Alberta Social Studies (1999-2022),” and “Is an antiracist history of education possible?” There will also be presentations by Thinking Historically and The Azrieli Foundation’s Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program.

Registration includes the hotel’s daily lunch buffet and an opportunity to meet over lunch with conference participants who are teacher educators, historians, museum educators, graduate students, and fellow teachers. Teachers’ Day registrants are also invited to attend all of the day’s presentation sessions as well.

Registration is $50 and this price includes the buffet lunch.

Interested teachers are invited to register here. (Please choose the non-member option and register for the Teachers’ Day including buffet lunch.)
