Description
The COVID-19 pandemic has unfortunately shone a spotlight on the multiple forms of racism that were prevalent in Canada long before the onset of the pandemic. If you are a teacher who identifies as Aboriginal, First Nations, Metis, Inuit, Indigenous, Black or a Person of Colour (IBPOC), your union has multiple support available to you to address both the individual and structural impacts of racism.

Experiment with genres, forms, or styles of texts
Use the conventions of Canadian spelling, syntax, and diction proficiently and as appropriate to the context
Transform ideas and information to create original texts, using various genres, forms, structures, and styles Students are expected to be able to do the following:
Use Social Studies inquiry processes and skills to ask questions; gather, interpret, and analyze ideas (including legal concepts, issues, and procedures); and communicate findings and decisions
Assess and compare the significance and impact of the experiences of Indigenous peoples in Canada’s history (significance)
Assess the justification for differing perspectives after investigating points of contention, reliability of sources, and adequacy of evidence (evidence)
Analyze continuities and changes for Indigenous peoples over time since contact with Europeans and in Canadian history (continuity and change)
Determine and assess the long- and short-term and intended and unintended impacts of colonial laws, policies, and history (cause and consequence)
Explain and infer multiple perspectives on people, places, issues, and events, and distinguish between world views of different cultures and peoples in history (perspective)
Make reasoned ethical judgments about decisions, laws, policies, actions, and events in colonial history and contemporary Canada (ethical judgment) Content Students are expected to know the following:
A wide variety of BC, Canadian, and global First Peoples texts
A wide variety of text forms and genres
Common themes in First Peoples literature (i.e., ways in which Indigenous peoples and communities have been impacted by colonial laws, policies, and history, like the overrepresentation of Indigenous people in prison)
Reconciliation in Canada (i.e., how Gladue rights relate to the concept of reconciliation and the “Calls to Action” of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, particularly 30–32)

Persuasive techniques Students are expected to know the following:
Examples of colonial laws and policies, and aspects of colonialism that have affected Indigenous peoples (e.g., residential schools)
Ways in which Indigenous people and communities have been impacted by colonial laws, policies, and history (e.g., overrepresentation of Indigenous people in Canadian prisons)
What Gladue rights are and how they fit into Canada’s criminal justice system (i.e., when sentencing an Indigenous person, the judge is obliged to take that person’s circumstances into account)
How Gladue rights relate to the concept of reconciliation and the “Calls to Action” of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (particularly 30–32) Big Ideas Texts and stories about the impacts of colonialism and possibilities of reconciliation provide insight into key aspects of Canada’s past, present, and future. Texts and stories about the impacts of Canada’s colonial history play a role within the process of reconciliation. The exploration of text and story deepens understanding of one’s identity, others, and the world, including:
how aspects of Canada’s colonial history have led to current disparities between Indigenous peoples and other Canadians, and
how attempts to address the impacts of colonialism are an aspect of reconciliation. Colonial laws, policies, and history affected Indigenous peoples in history and continue to have consequences for Indigenous people and communities today. Reconciliation, which involves the transformation of Canadian society, takes many forms, including the criminal justice system’s recognition of Gladue rights. Canada’s colonial history and its ongoing impact has led to loss of culture and identity for many Indigenous people. It has led to significant educational, income, health, and social disparities between Indigenous peoples and other Canadians, including an overrepresentation of Indigenous people in prison.

Description
This unit is designed to be highly adaptable to the needs of the teacher and their class. The activities can be applied to any short story. You can read multiple short stories in a row and wrap up the unit with the "Book Talks" lesson, or you can read a single short story and move on to other subjects. The projects should take students a full week to complete and they should be able to do them mostly independently. This model works well for asynchronous distance learning. However, the activities will easily transfer into the face-to-face classroom.

In tandem, students are also asked to select – from a curated list of relevant competencies – which they wish to develop/focus on throughout their project. Through the student’s proposal and the teacher’s feedback on this proposal, student and teacher co-create the criteria of where and how each student will demonstrate their competencies to me. This summative structure was originally created for a sonnets unit, however, it can be adapted for many different units and subjects.

Description
These documents take a bit of time to introduce, but quickly become a staple for the English classroom. Based on research and various resources, I have put together a strategy to get students thinking and connecting with what they read. The guide helps to get students started with the concept of close reading, and the dialogue journal is to be used for longer works and/or works that cannot be written on. I recommend taking time to teach the subject-specific vocabulary and doing a guided practice of annotating. For the annotations, you can give a minimum number for the annotations themselves and/or the number of categories. To prepare for an essay, I have also directed students to have a certain number of annotations that can be used as evidence in their writing.

Most people don’t realize that British Columbia has the richest biodiversity of any province or territory in Canada. Biodiversity can be measured in many ways, but the simplest way to measure it is by species richness—the number of species present. Within our species-rich territory, there are many species at risk, and in most cases, human activity is responsible for the decline of wildlife populations.

There are two lesson packages - one on the BC Election Process and Voting, and the other on Parliamentary Democracy and the Role of MLAs. The BC Election Process and Voting Lesson Package provides newcomers with essential information needed to participate in a provincial election. A voting simulation activity provides participants with an opportunity to experience each step of the act of voting as if they were at a physical voting station. The Parliamentary Democracy and the Role of MLAs Lesson Package gives newcomers a more in-depth understanding of the democratic process in BC, as well as the role of an MLA in representing constituents. The lesson packages teach adult immigrant and refugee English language learners how to participate in the democratic process when they become eligible as Canadian citizens.

In this activity, students are asked to reflect upon their own experience with dividing tasks. The students watch two short videos to learn about how government responsibilities are divided and about the impact these divisions have on elections in Canada. Students then deepen their understanding by completing activities at different learning stations, to explore the three levels of government and the different aspects that occur with elections on each level. Finally, students consolidate their understanding through both class discussion and personal reflection; and, are encouraged to explore how they can actively engage in the electoral process.

Within the context of COVID-19, critical social distancing measures have distanced teachers and students from their physical school communities. We asked Scout Gray, SOGI 1 2 3 Program Lead for BC and Alberta, to share what impact the pandemic is having on youth who identify as LGBTQ2S+, and what teachers can do to support them.

The students need to read the newspaper articles and answer short-answer questions. Students should already have a fairly general knowledge of Hitler and Stalin and be familiar with the concept of “purge.” The newspaper articles may be difficult for some students to comprehend, and this should be a consideration. You may wish to combine the documents into a single PDF to distribute to your students. I provide a single-point rubric, but this can be easily changed.

Students should have some general knowledge about World War I, and in particular the causes of WWI. It would also be beneficial if the students had some cursory knowledge of the concept of nationalism. The students start by watching speeches by Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin to detect nationalism in their speeches. Then the students read a primer on nationalism to further inform their thinking. Lastly, the students will read three nationalistic speeches by Georges Clemenceau, Lloyd George, and Kaiser Wilhelm. As the students are reading they should fill out the Nationalistic Speeches Handout. Once they are done, they will pick the speech they find most convincing and justify their choice. This lesson can be split up and delivered online or hard copy. I provide a single-point rubric, but you may wish to change it to your own liking. Feel free to modify.

This activity is designed to have students consider what it would be like for various people to live during the Great Depression. Three cases are presented, representing low to high income individuals and their families. Students can investigate 1-3 case studies and compare/contrast between them. The discussion questions can be modified to fit the number of cases the student will be analyzing. This can also be done in pairs or triads, with each student creating a budget for one case. Students can complete this activity and submit it online. Or print the answers out and send/scan/photograph them and submitting them digitally or in print. I use a single point rubric, but any other assessment can be easily inserted in.
