Description
The transition from high school to a post-secondary institution can be quite the learning curve. Students must quickly learn to manage finances, develop time-management skills, determine the program they would like to pursue (and courses to undertake), practice new studying techniques, and build their resume, among many other things. The Life After High School: A Post-Secondary Student’s Guide to Success resource booklet covers a variety of topics related to post-secondary education to provide practical and helpful infor- mation for students who would like to attend post-secondary school but may not know where to start. This booklet, developed by positive post-secondary students, provides information on mental wellness, academic life, social networking, career support, financial aid, and more. The Life After High School: A Post-Secondary Student’s Guide to Success aims to support students in their transition to post-secondary school and help students to reach their full potential!

Le Canada et les conflits : Une perspective humanitaire : Mise au point par les enseignants de niveau secondaire à l’intention de leurs homologues, cette ressource éducative a pour but d’informer les jeunes et de leur donner les moyens de passer à l’action en vue d’atténuer la souffrance humaine. Illustrée au moyen d’exemples propres au contexte canadien, la nouvelle version 2016 comprend six modules qui abordent divers sujets liés au droit humanitaire international, dont les crimes de guerre, les réfugiés, les crises négligées, les inégalités entre les sexes, les principes humanitaires ainsi que les mécanismes favorisant la justice et l’engagement des jeunes. Offerte en français et en anglais, la ressource « Le Canada et les conflits » complète directement certaines matières scolaires, comme l’instruction civique, les sciences sociales, l’histoire, la géographie, le droit, les études linguistiques et les sciences humaines.

Les méthodes d’enseignement utilisées exigent des élèves qu’ils participent activement au processus d’apprentissage.

This submission by Susie Grace, Ramona De Graaf, and Stephanie Watkins, includes an authentic hook (presented in the powerpoint) for the need to learn unit pricing. There are 3 activities. The first discovery activity takes quite a bit of preparation but the second main activity takes very little time to prepare. The prices are authentic, the pictures are authentic and the activity is lifelike for sure. Also, more than just unit pricing the main and supplementary activities also look at responsible buying. Why do you choose product X over product Y? Are you only considering the unit price?

Description
Class 1 A short video documentary, filmed at a Siwash Gathering in Tsilhqot'in territory (near Sugar Cane), introduces the game of Lahal. Learners will listen and watch to learn not only the rules of the game, but also the purpose both past and present. Learners will learn about the materials, the hand signals as well as the object and procedures of the game. Learners will be introduced the the value this game holds for the Tsihlqot'in community both past and present. Learners will then be asked to calculate theoretical probabilities of certain results in the game. Class 2 Learners will be introduced to experiential probability and will have an opportunity to conduct a math experiment in small groups. Follow up Learners will have a chance to reflect on their learning after watching a first nation's dance celebrating Laval. Finally, if the teacher wishes, the actual game of Lahal can be played! Worksheets, links to videos, music, etc. provided.

This resource is a tool kit of short PDF files that can be used in a variety of ways to improve a group’s ability to understand each other, resolve differences and make good decisions. It was developed to support a seminar series conducted by the Centre for the Study of Educational Leadership and Policy (CSELP) at SFU. The tool kit could be useful for staff meetings, school-based team meetings or union executive meetings for example.  It can also help individuals to deepen their understanding of the complexities of communication and improve their ability to be constructive participants in any type of discussion - whether as part of a group or more generally in their interpersonal relations.

Description
The Furious Fractions game is an attempt to make learners increase their fluency with fractions while also incorporating Aboriginal content into the learning process. Students will be grouped together and assigned a Tsimshian village that they must protect from an impending attack from a Haida war canoe. To protect their village they must create whole numbers from a loose collection of varying fractions in an assigned bag. Once they have made a whole number they will be rewarded a piece of fortification. Their village will only be safe once it has been entirely fortified and this must be achieved before the Haida war canoe arrives. The war canoe is moving towards the villages at a set rate and so the students' time is limited. The game is exciting and can be developed for varying math levels. The addition of sound effects such as drumming and other printed materials can act to further engage learners.

Cette ressource est un outil pour aider les étudiants à mieux écrire des productions écrites. Le Petit Lexique est une référence qui permet de trouver le mot juste qui traduit l’idée désirant être véhiculée. Cette ressource illustre les différentes étapes de la composition. Au départ pour faire germer des idées avant de commencer un texte, durant le développement, pour faire progresser le texte, et finalement, pour réviser et améliorer le texte. Le recueil décompose les différentes parties du texte narratif (récit d’aventure, le conte ou la nouvelle). La situation initiale est composée par la notion du temps, le lieu et le personnage. Le développement du récit est illustré par des exemples liés aux événements, les réactions et actions du personnage et finalement, la situation finale offre des exemples liés au dénouement (l’échec ou la réussite).

Description
In this activity, students investigate the fascinating and complex process of decomposition and lay the foundation for deeper understanding of concepts related to matter and energy transfer in ecosystems. Through exploration and discussion, students go beyond simple definitions. Instead, students discover key characteristics of decomposition as they struggle with creating a sequence for decomposing wood and leaves. They learn the difference between physical decomposition and chemical decomposition and that many things contribute to decomposition, but certain organisms are classified as decomposers. They also search for and discuss evidence of decomposers, make model diagrams to further develop their ideas about the process of decomposition, and discuss decomposition and its role in the cycling of matter. Finally, students are challenged to recognize the evidence and impact of decomposition in the ecosystems they explore.

During the activity, students pick up a natural object, such as a leaf, and make “I notice…” statements out loud with a partner, then share some of their observations with the group. They do the same with “I wonder…” questions, and with “It reminds me of…” connections. Then, students practice using these tools while exploring whatever they find interesting. This simple routine can help students get beyond seeing nature as a “green blur,” and lead them to never be bored in nature again.

Description
Students take a census of an outdoor site, and look for organisms that perform different “jobs” in the biotic community. A biotic (or natural) community is made up of the various organisms that live and interact with one another in a particular environment. As in a human community, its members have different roles and depend on each other for survival. In this activity, students examine a study area to find out what organisms live there and the ecological jobs or niches they fill.

Description
With animation, interactivity, and sound effects, Starting with Soil demonstrates how plants and animals cooperate to make the soil we need to grow healthy food. Kids learn that soil starts with bare rock and discover how long it takes nature to make one inch of topsoil. (Spoiler alert: it takes 500 years!) Different chapters convey the importance of pollinators and the critical roles animals, the weather, microorganisms, and cover crops play in organic farming. Designed for students ages 7-9, Starting with Soil allows users to plant seeds, build a compost pile, drag a microscope over different organisms in soil to get a better look, and view the symbiosis at work when corn, beans, and squash are planted together.

Description
Matter cycles. Matter for growth, maintenance and reproduction in all organisms cycles through the ecosystem and Earth processes. All life needs certain matter in order to stay alive. This includes nitrogen, phosphorus, and water; oxygen for many but not all animals; and carbon dioxide for plants, to name a few kinds of matter.

Description
Students explore a forest at designated stations, using their vision and, blindfolded, their other senses. By engaging with the forest in a personal, multisensory activity, students will become more sensitive to the components of a forest, and hopefully, treat our landscapes with increased respect.
