New: The Student Toolkit Area

Look for the small ⚒️ Student Toolkit area link in the top menu.

There you will find some How-tos and other tutorials for doing the Intellectual Operations, lots of graphic organizers you can use, and more!

Note that this site is under development. We have already posted several new sections with original overview texts and embedded activities that both students and parents can follow. At the bottom of each section, look for a Teacher's Corner area, for teacher guides, tools and documents designed for educators but that are available for everyone to browse and use as they see fit.

Quicklinks: Some Key LEARN sub-sites and sections elsewhere

Various sections of LEARN Social Sciences can already be viewed at learnquebec.ca/socialsciences, though often browsing through the original https://www.learnquebec.ca/history page can also provide a clear path for History educators to find some of our additional resources. Here are more direct paths to a few of our sub-sites and sub-sections as well:

Cartograf. A student mapping site with many sample mapping scenarios from all levels. ➦

Societies and Territories. An Elementary-level history site with many resources useful for Secondary History as well! ➦

Social Sciences "How-Tos for Students". A few handy tutorials for students to help with skills in Geography and History. ➦ (Note, this site area is also available via the Student Toolkit page on this site.)

Evaluation in Social Sciences. Some of our guides for Intellectual Operations, Icons, Badges and also what is available as practice exams and assignments (though those should eventually also appear in context on each page of this site at the bottom as well.) ➦

Graphic Organizer Storehouse. Scaffolding tools, schematics, timelines, etc. As we produce resources we often produce learning tools, and we try to store copies in a central area for safekeeping as well. ➦

RECITUS Historical Discussion Cards ➦ Our English adaptation of RECITUS cards that were designed to help students discuss historical topics, and also to interview each other about concepts and course content.

And finally, a few quick links for Professional Learning in Social Sciences

UDL in a Social Sciences Context:
Resources and Challenges in a Digital Age
Thinking about how you might adjust your History content and practices for all learning styles and experiences? LEARN online resources, in line with the secondary and new adult education history courses, can help you engage your students, explore, use and also interpret events for a variety of situations. Recently I shared a presentation on new templates structured around UDL with some teachers at the ACE Online summit. A video presentation on the First part on Engage is available at https://youtu.be/p5uS6IxKjfk
