Sponsored by the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, the annual British Columbia Teachers’ Institute on Parliamentary Democracy is an intensive four-day professional development opportunity for teachers of social studies and related subjects in elementary, middle and secondary school. Participating teachers return to their schools with an enhanced understanding of parliamentary democracy and political process in B.C.
The next session of the B.C. Teachers' Institute on Parliamentary Democracy will be held from October 16-20, 2018 in Victoria.
Applications are being accepted until June 29, 2018.
Thank you to the 30 teachers from across the province who participated in the October 2017 session of the B.C. Teachers' Institute on Parliamentary Democracy. During an intensive four days in Victoria, the teachers collaborated to produce six engaging new lesson plans on topics related to governance, parliamentary procedure and democracy. Visit the Learning Resources page to access all lesson plans.
What would you take if you had to suddenly leave your home?
The Suitcase Project asked yonsei and gosei (fourth and fifth generation Japanese Canadian and Americans) what they would pack if uprooted from their homes at a moment's notice, like their ancestors had to during the internment in BC in the 1940s. The BCTF strongly supports examining historical wrongs during the intermediate grades through Social Studies. This exhibit displays the impact of this unfortunate part of Canada's history on Japanese Canadians both then and now.
