Home Forums Introduce Yourself Kimberly Re: Re: Kimberly



O'd be very interested to hear how you got qualified to be a history teacher. I'm slowly coming to realise that it may be my calling in life, but seeing as I spurned History in all my childhood education, I've got a bit of catching up to do.

I know in Canada, in order to become a teacher you need to take a Bachelors in Education and usually another in Arts or Science (combined it takes 5 years) But, here in Alberta, we don't actually teach history as a subject, just "Social Sciences" which is a useless mix of 10 different subjects.To teach history properly in Canada, you need a Master of Arts in History, (for colleges- takes at least 5 years) and a PhD. in History (for teaching in Universities- takes at least 7 years).
