About the Learning Strategies
Each year, Learning Strategies are developed by participants in the Teachers Institute on Canadian Parliamentary Democracy. As part of the program, teachers from across the country work collaboratively to outline ways of implementing the insights they gain on Parliament, democracy, governance and citizenship during their week on Parliament Hill.
The Learning Strategies are presented here as the teachers developed them during the program, without time or opportunity for editing, piloting or formal review. The ideas and opinions expressed in these documents belong to their authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the Library of Parliament. The Library of Parliament does not edit the Learning Strategies for content accuracy or currency of information.
In their current form, the Learning Strategies provide an excellent starting point for reflection, elaboration and refinement. We invite Teachers Institute alumni and other educators to take advantage of this impressive resource. Please feel free to develop and adapt these strategies for your students and teaching colleagues.
We welcome your comments about these materials, and would appreciate hearing about other approaches and ideas for teaching on citizenship and Canadian parliamentary democracy.
