Unearthing Canada's Hidden Past
A Short History of Adult EducationBook - 2013
In Unearthing Canada's Hidden Past, Michael Welton provides an overview of adult learning and education in Canada from the first contact between Canada's First Nations and European settlers, through the industrialization of Canada, the political turmoil of the twentieth century, right up until the digital revolution of the present day. Welton focuses on "uncommon schools" and encourages readers to think about how men, women, and children were educated in different times and places as well as how our foremothers and forefathers learned to make a living, live their lives, and express themselves, often in difficult and taxing circumstances.
