Teacher’s Guides & Educational Resources
UNA-Canada offers a wealth of educational resources to help teachers introduce global issues into the classroom. The following series of programs, lesson plans, teacher’s guides and student manuals were all produced to support teachers who seek to engage and inspire their students to grow as global citizens.
Most were produced with funding from the Canadian Federal Government and other partners, and are copyright-free for non-saleable, educational use. We also recommend visiting our UNA-Canada Publications for additional issue-specific resources.
This teachers’ handbook on Canadian Contributions to Peacekeeping was created as part of the 50th anniversary of UN Peacekeeping (2006). It includes 4 lesson plans and is designed to provide teachers with background information related to Canada’s contribution to UN peacekeeping and to offer a variety of activities that can be performed within classrooms. Students learn about the origin of peacekeeping, how it evolved, and consequently how the Canadian contribution to peacekeeping changed over the last 50 years. Instruction methods proposed in the recommended activities include active learning, discussion, group work, role-playing and research projects.
