Do you know the best teacher of Canadian history and the social world? If so, invite them to submit their nomination (it could be you!) For the Governor General's History Award for Teaching Excellence. “Established in 1996, the Awards are presented to elementary and secondary school teachers who have inspired and motivated their students to explore Canadian history in a stimulating context. Whether they have three or thirty years of experience, the Society wishes to highlight the leadership and innovative spirit of teachers by highlighting remarkable work often carried out in the shadows. "
