People at Laurier
In the fourth installment of 'People at Laurier,' an eight-part written series looking at innovative approaches to teaching in a variety of fields, Andrew Thomson, an instructor with 20 years experience teaching Canadian history, sheds light on his 'storytelling' strategies to engaging students. He also shares insight on dispelling the notion that Canadian history is anything less than fun and exciting, while teaching students about the country in which they live.
