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 élèves pourraient être appelés à : - décrire la façon dont les Autochtones ont participé à l'évolution du Canada (par exemple, aux chapitres de l'alimentation, du transport, de l'exploration, des arts et de la technologie); - reconnaître les contributions que les Autochtones ont apportées aux établissements de colonisation; - décrire diverses plantes utilisées dans la préparation de mets (par exemple, les légumes, les fruits, les épices et les fines herbes); - connaître des noms de lieux autochtones. En plus de lire le récit, les enfants peuvent s'amuser à colorier les illustrations qui égaient la publication. En outre, Claire et son grand-père sert de point de départ à d'autres activités connexes que les enseignants peuvent intégrer au programme pédagogique actuel. Il y a certes plusieurs façons de présenter ce sujet aux élèves afin de le rendre intéressant. Voici quelques activités que l'on suggère.

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.

Here is a cross-curricular unit on the diversity of living things and where they live. It includes lessons that explore living and non-living things; the differences between a need and want; and the biomes within Canada. There are lessons for outside, in the class, and computer labs with the intention of inquiry and student driven learning. Included is the interactive student notebook, a test, and an assessment for a 3D biome box project - with the intention that all 3 items are weighed evenly when accumulating evidence of learning.

Description
This guide is meant to support professional leaning among educators but may also be useful to parents or other adults who interact with children. It is designed to be used in self-directed inquiry groups but can also be used for personal study. It builds capacity for using engaged philosophical inquiry in drug education but the concepts and skills apply to education generally. The material in this guide is arranged as an 8-session inquiry, but you can adapt it to fit your own needs. The theory and practice readings have been carefully selected to provide an accessible introduction to the material and stimulate the application of the ideas into practice. They familiarize you with foundational ideas and theories of philosophical inquiry and how they can be applied to different learning environments. They discuss different philosophical content (e.g., questions) and philosophical methods to help you with facilitation. They are meant to stimulate thinking not provide all the answers.

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!

In this 'Tools for Thought' lesson developed by The Critical Thinking Consortium (www.tc2.ca) students use visual clues to explain images. They develop an understanding of the importance of making plausible inferences about an image in order to gather information about a historical or contemporary situation or place. It includes instructional suggestions for teachers (learn about the strategy, practicing the strategy, independent student activities) and resources for students (data chart, rating scale, student guide, samples and self-assessment rubric). An additional 80 Tools for Thought lessons are available to either individual members of Partner schools, boards and/or districts.

The Great Bear Sea is a new name given to the North Coast of British Columbia (BC), an area that extends from Campbell River on Vancouver Island to the border of BC and Alaska. This region of British Columbia’s coast is one of the richest marine ecosystems in the world, has enormous cultural significance to the people who live here, and contains important resources for BC’s economy.

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

The documentary video Flood of Change shares the story of three youth in Nepal and their movement to take action around water, sanitation and hygiene issues. The story is told by Nepalese youth who filmed 70% of the final footage and found the words and images to share their story. In this video, we learn about a diarrhea outbreak that happened in the Western Region of Nepal in 2009. The outbreak affected over 5,000 individuals and caused more than 464 deaths in 18 districts. The majority of the deaths were people in the ethnic group known as Dalits or "untouchables" who are a low income group in Nepal and have poor access to sanitation facilities and little education on safe water, sanitation and hygiene. A group of youth from Kathmandu mobilized to visit the region and create awareness about the importance of safe water and sanitation in the affected area.

Description
The material offers an introduction to refugee and displacement issues for students in grade 6 and up. The educational resources are the result of a collaborative effort between the graduate school class (summer 2008) of Dr. Jan Stewart, Director of the Institute for War-Affected Children at Global College, University of Winnipeg and Médecins Sans Frontières/ Doctors Without Borders (MSF). The materials were developed based upon an earlier MSF educational publication: “A Refugee Camp in the City, On Assignment” Teachers Guide, MSF Canada (2003). We hope these five lesson plans will encourage students to continue to learn and understand the challenges more than 50 million refugees and internally displaced people face worldwide
