This year MSSTA will once again be working with our partners in the Social Studies Educators Network of Canada as well as the Association of Canadian Studies to bring our members a high quality, national social sciences conference.

Given the nature of teaching the social sciences in 2021, the theme chosen for this year’s conference is “Inquiry, Equity, and Engagement”. How do we provide a more inclusive curriculum? How are we engaging students in authentic inquiry? How are we responding to unprecedented challenges in education?

This year’s conference will be offering three different types of sessions to offer participants a quality online conference experience that includes workshops, roundtables, and pre-recorded sessions. It will also include the opportunity for members to meet with other interested parties who seek to advance the teaching of social sciences in Canada.

On Thursday evening, October 21, members will have the opportunity to hear from a keynote speaker (TBA) and have some time to meet and virtually hang out with colleagues from across the country.

Friday will be the more traditional MTS PD Day with a keynote, sessions that are national and local in scope, as well as sessions from the Association for Canadian Studies, and the Thinking Historically for Canada’s Future project.

On Saturday, members will have the opportunity to be part of a special PD opportunity provided by the Alberta Teachers’ Association’s Social Studies Council who will be hosting sessions given by the Critical Thinking Consort
