This lesson about orcas was designed for grades 4-8 but can be adapted for primary grades and covers many curricular competencies in Language Arts, Science, Social Studies and Art. The cognitive strategies suggested are engaging and motivating for learners with a variety of learning needs and can also be applied to most learning sequences across the curriculum. They also include practice with the core competencies. These will provide many entry points for learners to explore the life, environment and struggles of the orcas. Granny’s Clan is an engaging story about an orca family. Students will instantly connect too many similarities between their family and Granny’s.

Assess and compare the significance and impact of the experiences of Indigenous peoples in Canada’s history (significance)

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)

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.

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.

The BCTF is a strong supporter and partner of SOGI 1 2 3, a provincial program that helps educators make schools inclusive and safe for students of all sexual orientations and gender identities (SOGI). 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.

Description
Reading questions, craft activity, and creative writing prompt based on middle-grade adventure novel "Last Chance Island" by BC author Norma Charles—for individual or group learning. Book Description: Two very different stories intersect with surprising results. Two African children, Kalu and his cousin, Aisha, escape from their village after it's destroyed by rebel soldiers. The kids flee to the coast where they find work on a fishing boat bound for Britain . . . until the nervous fisherman abandons them on Last Chance Island off the coast of Ireland. Meanwhile, Spike, a Canadian teen, finds out that her father has died, and she is being sent to live with a distant relative, a woman who tends the lighthouse on Last Chance Island. Spike can't wait to escape and join a troupe of musicians she's met in Dublin. But one day, she discovers the two stranded kids in desperate need of help. Will she change her plans to try to save them? Book Trailer: https://youtu.be/5qqwAPgEJ9I

Description
This activity hopes to bring to life some of the many immigration stories that contribute to Canada's past, present and future. With research, art and some level of performing arts, this activity is designed to be interdisciplinary and engaging for students to understand perspective, and how the change and continuity of Canadian immigration patterns have helped shape our nation. In addition to various assessments that will accompany this activity, students will be given a reflection sheet after the presentations. This will allow them to voice any strengths or stretches they encountered during the activity, and provide their teacher with any mitigating factors that they think should be taken into account during assessment.
