Description
This fun-filled activity allows students to put on a simple production of "T'was the night before Christmas" in both French and English. In order to provide maximum participation, a teacher may wish to divide the lines of this classic poem so that each student recites 2 or 3 lines at a time. Each student would bring props, costumes and any set designs they wish. Be sure to allow students to take ownership of all aspects of the production (casting roles, direction, costumes, speech coaches, props manager, etc.). In the end, be sure to invite other classes to come watch this 5 minute performance. It's sure to put a jolly smile on students' faces.

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!

This is meant as an enrichment activity to dovetail with BC’s resources and economy. Also, it will demonstrate that while treaties, residential schools and the Indian Act set back and damaged Aboriginal culture and development, there are Aboriginal success stories. The lessons bring in themes of good resource management in BC. This offers some enrichment in business planning.

Learning Standards
The Violence is Preventable (VIP) program is a comprehensive strategy for connecting schools, educators, students and families with Children Who Witness Abuse (CWWA) programs across the province to improve the health and welfare of children and youth impacted by violence. As provincial coordinator of this school-based prevention program, the BC Society of Transition Houses (BCSTH) supports VIP sites to accomplish the following program goals: • Break the silence of domestic violence by making it safe for children and youth to speak up in schools about their experiences? • Increase teacher, school staff, parent/caregiver, and student awareness about violence in relationships and its effects on child witnesses? • Empower participants to become personally involved in community social justice initiatives; • Motivate students and educators to recognize violence in their everyday lives; and • Facilitate partnerships between schools and communities in order to respond to the emotional, social, academic, and psychological needs of children and youth exposed to domestic violence.
Duration
Varies based on the needs of each school.

This unit can be developed over the course of the whole school year, particularly if the final celebration has an end-of-year focus. Alternatively, the unit can be the primary focus of study for a period of one to three months.

Description
Storytelling is a favorite way to develop personal and social responsibility. Stories teach by attraction rather than by compulsion. They invite rather than impose. Stories capture the imagination and stir strong feelings. Stories give hope and encouragement. They stir minds to think about other ideas and choices that are possible. The personal and social responsibility characteristics that form the basis of this unit are based on the Gitxsan understanding of seven foundation traits — the “seven Grandfathers shown on seven stones.”
