Description
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
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.

Description
The Echo Project is about exploring an aspect of 20th century Canadian history through a generational lens. This is done by making a personal connection to the past through interviews and scouring intimate primary documents such as family journals, letters, and photographs as well as what students find with broader research. Students think critically about sources and patterns, develop historical empathy, and get creative with how they represent the past. While many students choose topics related to the World War II era, they may discover they have ties to stories and events before or after the war such as the Great Depression of the 1930s or the Postwar era of the 1950s and 60s.

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 warm up activity reinforces the 3 ways to asking a question: Intonation, Est-ce que, Inversion. Students work in small teams to determine the solution to a enigmatic problem by asking the teacher only Yes/No questions. The more questions they ask the more points they earn. The teacher presents the enigmas one at a time in French. Students ask Comment dit-on ... Que veut-dire ... questions to verify their comprehension. Using images in the slides, synonyms, gestures or charades, the teacher explains the text. English is never required. Once understood, the teams ask yes/no questions to determine the solution. Each team scores points accordingly if they ask a properly phrased question: Intonation: 1 point, Est-ce que: 5 points, Inversion: 10 points. A poorly phrased question earns 0 points, nor does the teacher answer with oui/non. If a teams explains the solution, they earn 25 points. Points can be traded in for prizes/rewards. Students can earn individual points. Super FUN!

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.

Explorons le droit humanitaire – Campus virtuel : (EDH) est un programme éducatif destiné à sensibiliser les jeunes de 13 à 18 ans aux règles et aux principes essentiels du droit international humanitaire (DIH). Les méthodes d’enseignement utilisées exigent des élèves qu’ils participent activement au processus d’apprentissage. Cela leur permet d’acquérir une « perspective humanitaire » et de bien appréhender une matière aussi austère et complexe que peut le paraître le DIH.

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.

Description
I followed a student outside and captured an ordinary moment. I reflected on what I saw. I talked to another teacher for their thoughts. I talked to the parent of the student for their thoughts. I connected his learning with the curriculum and thought about what I would do in the classroom to further his learning and the learning of others. A pedagogical narration is the process and framework I used to make learning visible.
