This proposed session will explore the merits of using literature with Social Studies, including graphic novels, novels, short stories, and historic non-fiction. Literature can help teachers and students alike with difficult topics like genocide, crimes against humanity, war, extremism, and one-sided history. From Maus to The Island, from Thomas King to Thomson Highway, a list of resources will be offered, curated and tested by an EPL staffer and teacher. A free lesson plan for Grade 11 will be provided to all who attend.
