VHF's Heritage Study Guide for Schools is a pilot project that will share a collection of online resources, lesson and field trip ideas related to heritage and local history, that connect to BC Curriculum Social Studies generally, and Grades 4/5 and Grades 9-11 specifically. VHF will present this workshop session with the VSB Archives & Heritage Committee Chair. A general introduction to the Heritage Study Guide components and best resources will be followed by a discussion, opportunities for feedback and participation in the creation of the Study Guide (Phase 1).
