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!

The aim of this booklet is to enhance the knowledge of students about the history, cultures and traditions of Inuit and, in particular, those who live in Canada’s northern Inuit community of Salluit. By completing the lessons in this booklet, students will be able to: - express an appreciation for the strong traditions and unique culture of the Inuit people, in various ways - describe the various developments that affected Canada’s Arctic from its early history to the present - locate the community of Salluit and its neighbouring Inuit municipalities on a map of Canada - relate the similarities and differences between life in Salluit and life in their own community.

A free online course created by TRAC Tenant Resource and Advisory Centre and the Justice Education Society.

The course is video-based, and sections can be viewed in any order. Students who complete the course and pass the final exam earn a certificate that can be presented to landlords when they apply for tenancy.
