Using this site
Created in consultation with instructors at Canadian colleges and universities, History in Practice/ Histoire en tête is designed to be functional, flexible, and easy to use. With “takeaway” module and unit learning objectives, extensive lesson planning tools, 80 learning activities and over 400 photographs, graphics, documents, videos and audio recordings, the site is a virtual plethora of possibilities.
History in Practice / Histoire en tête (HiP/HeT) includes short pieces and activities for instructors with just a little extra room in their curriculum, and extensive, in-depth resources for programs with space for an extended sojourn in mental health. Learners from subject-based disciplines like history, sociology and disability studies will find the HiP/HeT resources valuable and compelling, but this site was specifically created for future mental health practitioners. The HiP/HeT learning objectives, “takeaways”, and accompanying artefacts and learning activities are designed to foster critically responsive and effective mental health practice. Instructors can customize lesson plans by selecting the resources that fit teaching and learning needs and interests.
