When we think about “defining moments,” we are thinking of moments that have—or ought to have—a wide resonance across the land we now call Canada. Educators already think and teach about these in their classrooms every day. What are moments of significance in our shared histories? What are moments of significance that are perhaps overlooked, or that include generally overlooked or silenced stories, communities, and individuals within them? What makes something significant in the first place, and how do our perceptions of what is significant shift based on our own lived experiences?
Our work is grounded in such moments and the question surrounding them, and our goal is to support educators—especially teaching Grades 6-12 (Sec 1-5 in Québec)—in creating rich learning experiences where students develop the depth & breadth of their thinking and hone their voice & agency.
