This course will explore the history and modern politics of Canada and the World since 1914. How the growth of Canada, with its ever forming identity and the current structure of its government has been developed internally and by the world around it. Students will learn about documents such as The Indian Act and how colonialism impacted, and continues to impact, the First Peoples of this land. After understanding the basics of Canada’s past and present, the course will travel around the globe and learn about World War II and the Cold War. Students will explore how these seemingly far off events from the past continue to impact contemporary life.
This exciting course will enable students to gain credits towards Socials 10.
Your Educator – Michelle Seigel
Fortunate enough to experience life on both coasts of Canada, Michelle’s early years were spent between British Columbia and New Brunswick. This inspired her love for travel and cultural exploration. She completed a Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences from the University of Victoria, a Citation in Health Sciences from Langara College, and a Montessori Teaching Diploma from the North American Montessori Center.
Michelle found a great sense of purpose in education and immense joy in both teaching and learning alongside the incredible youth in her life. She has seven years of teaching experience behind her and is excited for all those to come. Michelle is dedicated to building meaningful relationships with each of her students and helping them discover their strengths, curiosities and a develop a genuine love of learning. She enjoys teaching language, history, and all things science. Michelle struggled with math in her high school years and now takes a particular interest in assisting students to overcome challenges in this area through creative problem solving and understanding individual learning styles. She believes everyone can be confident and successful when met with the right approach.
In her personal time Michelle loves cooking, open water swimming, studying new languages, traveling, or digging in the dirt with her wife and Rabbit (Pepper) at their community garden.
