This Climate Justice in BC resource package was designed to provide teachers with classroom-ready materials to engage their students with how climate action intersects with social justice. The curriculum features eight modules designed for students in Grades 8 to 12 that explore climate justice within the context of BC’s communities history, economy and ecology.These lessons tie into subject matter and prescribed learning outcomes (PLOs) already in BC’s curriculum, while providing a framework with which to unpack modern social and environmental issues, such as our industrial food system, consumerism and waste, transportation, and the development of a green economy.

Description
I was challenged to come up with a "tinkering" or "inquiry" for elementary mathematics. This was my answer to the challenge! When you add on a circular number line, you create repeating cycles of numbers. From there, you can represent the cycles with bead patterns and start to ask questions about the nature of the cycles, and how they change on different "clocks". Modular mathematics is an important part of representing any repeating pattern mathematically (dates, times, patterns of atoms in crystals, even patterns in weaving).

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.

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!

Description
The Every Teacher Project is a national study of Canadian educators’ perceptions and experiences of LGBTQ-inclusive education, designed to identify and make widely available the collective expertise of teachers and educational workers on inclusive education practices for sexual and gender minority students. The Every Teacher Project attracted tremendous support from project partner The Manitoba Teachers’ Society and from every national, provincial and territorial teacher organization in the publicly funded school systems of Canada. With their help in recruiting, researchers completed the project with 3,400 survey participants and an additional 24 focus groups, far exceeding our initial goals and making this the largest study of its kind in the world to date.

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.

Description
For this narration, we focused on a Grade One student who was observed during their play outdoors in the rich winter landscape near West Boundary Elementary School. Reflecting on other ‘ordinary moments’ outdoors with children, we have also included snapshots that capture what children do when they are outside. Donna Boucher teaches Grade 3 at Sardis Elementary in Chilliwack, BC and is an active member of EEPSA (secretary). Growing up as a farm kid and early career work as a wildlife biologist developed her appreciation and connection to nature. This guides her practice as she provides lots of opportunities for her students to explore and engage with their natural world. Janine Fraser teaches Kindergarten and Grade One at Midway Elementary School in Midway, BC. She grew up exploring the forests and creeks around her school in North Vancouver and values opportunities to get kids outside. Natasha Burgess teaches Kindergarten and Grade One at Marysville Elementary School in Marysville, BC. While working on her Masters of Education through UVic, she became very interested in ecoliteracy and learning outdoors with young children.
