    Panel Discussion on the New BC Social Studies Curriculum

    Making History: Perspectives on Historical Thinking The Revised Social Studies Curriculum

    With the impending full implementation of the revised K-12 Social Studies Curriculum, the BCSSTA has shaped this year’s annual Professional Development Conference around supporting these changes with ideas, debates, and resources.    

    In order to foster a deeper understanding of the Curricular Competencies, including both critiques and advantages of this structure, the BCSSTA has organized the Conference differently than in previous years. Instead of a singular keynote address we have chosen to present a panel discussion / debate on the ‘Big Six’ Historical Thinking Concepts. It is hoped that the ensuing debate will shed light into how history is done from a variety of perspectives and practices.
