Reading the National Narrative

Award Ceremony is a Go

Dec 7, 2018

The always reliable Christopher Moore reports that the Governor General's History Awards will be going ahead in January with Gov. Gen. Julie Payette's involvement. (Here is the link to Chris's post: http://christophermoorehistory.blogspot.com/2018/12/history-of-gg-not-be....)

This is excellent news. I have participated in the awards ceremony twice -- once as a runner-up and once as a recipient -- and it is an inspiring affair, bringing together as it does so many teachers who are doing interesting and innovative things in the classroom. We have very few occasions when history is celebrated. Good to know we are not losing one.
