Pan-Canadian Survey on the Teaching of History

Do you teach history or social studies in a Canadian K-12 (or “5e secondaire” in Québec) educational institution? Are you willing to complete an online survey about history teaching and learning? This is a once-a-generation study of Canadian teachers’ experiences teaching history! This survey aims to assess the state of K-12 history teaching and learning in Canada. It should take you approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. “Thinking Historically” is interested in the teaching strategies, resources, and assessment strategies teachers use when teaching history. They are also interested in learning about teachers’ pre- and in-service professional learning experiences related to teaching history. Responses will assist in identifying & developing evidence-based practices in history teaching, learning, assessment & resource development. This is the first study of its kind to be conducted at a pan-Canadian level in more than 50 years. By responding to this survey, you are directly contributing to the future of history education in Canada.
