From the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action, to an ever-growing climate justice movement, and from demands for gender equity to resistance to austerity movements and far-right nationalism, meaningful classroom conversations across the curriculum have never been more vital.

Join best-selling author David Stocker (Maththatmatters, and Maththatmatters 2) for a one-hour exploration of ideas and activities that pull together history, language, mathematics, science, political science and social justice.

The Faculty of Education is pleased to present this event on Wednesday, February 12 from 12:00-1:00 pm in Room 2034 of the Bora Laskin Building.
