June 3, 2010

Calvin Park Public School, Kingston (Ontario)

Carol White brings Canadian history to life for her grade 8 students through field trips, simulations, multi–media and community study. She uses history as a vehicle to teach the skills students will need for the future. They explore the past through illustration, videos, models, dramatic presentations, overnight field trips and computer programs. In the immigration simulation Utopia — Why Not?, students study culture in Canada and other parts of the world and create the perfect world.
