Educational Resources for Teachers
Welcome to the Teacher Resource section of our website. The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (PWNHC) offers a variety of educational resources for teachers. In addition to a listing of online and hands-on teacher resources, we have also created a curriculum section, which connects NWT curricula with the resources of the PWNHC, a detailed document on Project-Based Learning specific to the NWT, and a section on Heritage Fairs, which will assist teachers in getting involved in local, regional and territorial heritage fairs.

This Teacher’s Guide will outline how you can promote quality heritage–based project work in your students, especially projects which have significant personal connections.
Nationalism in the North: Exploring Land Claims and Treaties with the Historical Timeline of the Northwest Territories - A Resource for Teachers of Social Studies 20-1 and 20-2 (PDF - 4 Mb)
The Nationalism in the North Teacher’s Guide uses the new McGraw-Hill Ryerson (2008) texts (Exploring Nationalism and Understanding Nationalism) and the Oxford (2008) text (Perspectives on Nationalism) to ensure teachers have a match with what they are required to teach, while incorporating examples of nationalism from northern history by using the Historical Timeline of the Northwest Territories and other tools.
