To better understand the current state of the economy, Michael Berry encourages his
students to take an imaginary voyage back through history. From Prime Minister R. B.
Bennett’s government in 1930 to Canada’s current government, students at Dr. E. P.
Scarlett High “meet” seven Prime Ministers in their time machine and research their
economic policies. Equipped with their new knowledge, students assume the role of
federal leaders and face off in a heated debate about economic issues.
For Berry’s interactive teaching approach, Canada’s History Society has awarded him
the 2014 Governor General’s History Award for Excellence in Teaching.
