Description
Two resources that can be used for the Music classroom that includes ELL Students. Resource 1 is a journal article from Kristen Lems entitled "Using Music in the Adult ESL Classroom" This article outlines ELL friendly activities that incorporate music to further understanding of sentence structure and grammar. Resource 2 is a video of a live performance of Hamilton: An American Musical. This video can be used in conjunction with a unit on musical genre, or musical theatre. Storyline of the show is presented in a slow, understandable delivery benefitting ELL students. Storyline is altered to present narrative of American History through immigrants, and people of colour, providing relevance to immigrant students in the classroom.

Description
This document contains tips and tricks for teaching the newly proposed Environmental Science coursework that will be implemented with the BC Draft Curriculum in the near future. My goal was to provide teaching strategies, assessment suggestions, field trip opportunities, and classroom ideas that are student led learning opportunities. In this document, you will NOT find worksheets or seat work. My hope was to provide invigorating ideas involving Environmental Science that will spark debate and critical thinking in your classroom. This document may be used or adapted for any science class. This was done as a Teach BC Assignment for my education coursework with the UNBC Education Program. I hope you enjoy it!

This document intends to aid teachers in their unit planning for the new Draft Environmental Science 11 and 12 coursework. Included in the article are means for implementing the values of the new curriculum into any science classroom, means for assessment (mainly formative, but could also be used for summative), as well as different methods for teaching the course material, and an included slide show and lesson plan. This was done as an assignment for my UNBC Education Program coursework. I hope you enjoy it!

These 13 books are my personal outdoor education / spiritual "gems".

Description
"Secret Path" was written by Gord Downie and illustrated by Jeff Lemire and illustrates the hardship and history of residential schooling in Canada . This book was inspired by an Anishinaabe boy named Chanie Wenjack who ran away from his residential school in 1966 and died on the way to his home with the Marten Falls First Nation. The story is a graphic novel accompanied by a soundtrack written by Downie, and was released in October of 2016. The release of the book was followed by an hour long special on CBC that tells the story in animation with the soundtrack. All of the proceeds from the book, album, and performance will go to the National Center for Truth and Reconciliation. Here are some ideas for centers/stations that could compliment the use of Secret Path as a resource in text, soundtrack and film forms. The book has immense possibilities and because of its graphic novel form it could be adapted to suit the needs (and appropriateness) of a variety of grades and subjects.
