This one's for the girls
Readingandremembrance.ca website clusters materials to celebrate Women's
PICKERING, ON, Sept. 27, 2011 /CNW/ - Reading and Remembrance 2011 has
free, downloadable materials that feature Canada as a peacekeeping and
peacemaking nation from 1945 to the present. "This one's for the girls"
is the title of the lesson specifically on women: UN Special
Representative to Burundi, Carolyn McAskie, an all-female UN police
unit in Liberia, Canadians teaching female police officers in Ghana.
The 2011 lessons include Canadian nurses Lyle Creelman and Beatrice
Roberts with the United Nations in post-WWII Europe, Carol Isfeld who
started the Izzy Doll movement to commemorate her son's death in the
Balkans (and all the knitters who have supported her), Ontario
journalist Hamida Ghafour writing about Afghanistan and Corporal
Shangary Satgunanathan who served there.
The rich fare of 2011 materials joins the archived features on women who
were entertainers, nurses, Silver Cross Mothers and much else during
and after WWII. A snapshot Minutes page provides an overview for quick
selection. Women's History month celebrations are just a click away!
Ontario Power Generation, the founding and supporting partner for this
not-for-profit provincial project received the President's Award from
the Ontario Historical Society in 2011.
This year's 10 lessons and 20 Minutes for Remembrance Day and Veterans'
Week are already available at www.readingandremembrance.ca
