Description
This is meant as an enrichment activity to dovetail with BC’s resources and economy. Also, it will demonstrate that while treaties, residential schools and the Indian Act set back and damaged Aboriginal culture and development, there are Aboriginal success stories. The lessons bring in themes of good resource management in BC. This offers some enrichment in business planning.

Description
This lesson involves using the "jigsaw" method of examining the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's "Call to Action" report. Students are in groups of four and each group receives a section of the Call to Action report (ie. 3 pages per group). Using the worksheet provided, students read, discuss and fill out highlights from the report. Next, the teacher brings the class together and each group shares their findings. In this way, some of the many highlights of the Call to Action report is covered. Finally, students can discuss a possible "action" in support of the report.
