The CBC Archives

The old CBC archives are still online and offer opportunities for teachers and students to access original broadcast materials and programming related to a variety of themes, including ones touching on feminist activism and issues. There is also a section for teachers which offers suggested lesson plans. We have compiled a list of links to some of the best resources on the CBC Archives website about the history of the Canadian women’s movement.

Women in Canadian History Education Guide

This guide complements provincial and territorial curricula in middle and high school history and social science classes. The historical thinking framework developed by Dr. Peter Seixas and the Historical Thinking Project has inspired classroom activities to promote research and analysis, engage critical thinking, promote communication skills, and explore ethical questions. The lessons may be used sequentially or individually.

There are two parts to the resource – the education guide and supplementary worksheets.
