What challenges do educators in classrooms and museums face when approaching local histories of the First World War?

Historian Mary Chaktsiris answers questions from history educators about engaging students in the local history of Toronto during the First World War in this third installment of the 2014 Approaching the Past workshop series.

Approaching the Past began in June 2010 as a quarterly workshop series in Toronto, Ontario, focused on bringing together people who work in middle and high schools, universities, and museums to discuss teaching history in a variety of contexts.

The workshop is sponsored by The History Education Network and includes a board made up of members of various history education institutions within the Toronto area.
