Description
Afin de souligner le centenaire des premiers succès des femmes en relation avec le droit de vote au Canada, Historica Canada (le plus grand organisme du pays dédié à l’accroissement de la sensibilisation de l’histoire et de la citoyenneté canadiennes) a créé ce guide pédagogique. Les activités incluses dans ce guide ont été développées en ligne avec les concepts du Projet de la pensée historique du Dr Peter Seixas; elles complètent les curriculums canadiens des niveaux de l’intermédiaire et du secondaire. Le guide invite les élèves à approfondir leur compréhension de l’égalité entre les sexes et de la démocratie, grâce à la recherche et l’analyse, à des sujets de discussion intéressants et à des activités de groupe. Il demande aux élèves d’examiner les questions d’identité, d’équité, d’activisme et de justice sociale dans des contextes historiques et contemporains.

To mark the centennial of the first achievements of women’s suffrage in Canada, Historica Canada (the country’s largest organization dedicated to enhancing awareness of Canada’s history and citizenship) has created this Education Guide. Developed in line with the concepts created by Dr. Peter Seixas and the Historical Thinking Project, this Guide complements Canadian middle-school and high-school curricula. It invites students to deepen their understanding of gender equality and democracy through research and analysis, engaging discussion questions, and group activities. It asks students to examine issues of identity, equity, activism and justice in historical and contemporary contexts.
