Description
The lesson will start with a discussion of how students use their smartphones, then students will play the game and analyze the main character’s choices. Students will brainstorm examples outside of the game of how data collection influences their online habits. From there the class will segue into a discussion of how privacy and convenience become a “tradeoff” at levels of smartphone use, and how comfortable we as smartphone users are in making that trade. After this discussion, students will write a short reflection of roughly 3–5 sentences about which tradeoffs, and to what degree, they feel comfortable making in their smartphone use.

Species at Risk Workshops are fun, hands-on, and solutions-oriented conservation workshops that focus on four species at risk in the Salish Sea: Southern Resident Killer Whales, Steller Sea Lions, Basking Sharks, and Leatherback Sea Turtles. These are a series of three inquiry-based workshops, that can be delivered virtually (the educator live streams to a class) or in-person for Grades 4-12. Students brainstorm and implement impactful stewardship projects to engage their schools and communities in aquatic species conservation. Workshops are designed to encourage critical thinking, personal awareness, and social responsibility. For virtual delivery, students are engaged through interactive tools such as Kahoot.

Learning Standards
Students are empowered to make changes in their everyday lives to help reduce human-caused threats to species at risk and our oceans. Through their Youth Action Team projects, they are able to see how their actions have real-world impacts. Students learn to be aware of the personal choices they make in their daily lives, and how they can contribute to their communities and make the world a better place. This is all taught through the lens of ocean conservation, with a focus on four species at risk that live in the Salish Sea. Students learn how their actions can impact these animals. Creative/Critical Thinking - I can learn a lot about something new, consider different perspectives, generate and develop new ideas, and implement them in real life (students brainstorm and participate in group discussions about solutions to threats to species at risk) Communication - I can share and develop ideas with others, take on roles and responsibilities with a group, summarize key ideas and present what I have learned (achieved through Youth Action Team projects and presentations in Workshop 3) Personal & Social Responsibility - I can explain what my values are and how they affect the choices that I make, I can participate in classroom and group activities to improve the wellbeing of myself, my community, and the natural world (achieved through Youth Action Team projects that are implemented in the community to benefit the natural world)

Includes a section on the importance of reclaiming land after mines are closed, and exercises for students to do inside (some requiring parent or teacher supervision) and outside the classroom (suitable for online education). This package was produced by the BC Stone Sand & Gravel Association (a registered non-profit) with thanks to a generous donation from Summit Materials that allowed us to build the package with assistance from the Ontario Stone Sand & Gravel Association. Many thanks also to the volunteer members who spent many hours reviewing and revising the materials to ensure they are ideally suited for use here in BC.

This lesson is suitable for Social Studies classes studying the First World War and the Canadian Home Front as well as curriculum examining gender and racial tensions in the work force of early British Columbia. The time period of the lesson is set in the closing months of the war and the early recovery period from the Great War to early 1919. Additional overlapping intrigues to the women struggling for fair wages and better working conditions in the steam laundries of Vancouver was the death of Ginger Goodwin and the threats of a General Strike raised by the Vancouver Trades and Labour Council, as well as the onset of the Spanish Influenza Pandemic. The lesson materials also examine the racial conflict between the steam laundries and the Chinese hand laundries. Critical thinking and the use of primary sources are at the core of the lesson activities.

The guide will deepen understanding and knowledge of colonial histories and the current realities of Indigenous People, as well as, an understanding of social injustices and discriminatory policies in Canada (including Residential Schools, the head tax, the legal system, disenfranchisement, and internments).

Description
Students are invited to create a survival plan of what they would need to survive if they were to live outside in their local habitat. They can only take from the earth and land and must consider factors like season, weather, habitat and ecosystem. "Netukulimk explains Mi’kmaw ways of life, tying together social and economic practices with systems of governance through time. Living in harmony, and taking only what you need, is the true essence of Indigenous ways of being and living." (Mi’kmawey Debert Cultural Centre). Our linked video explores the concept in an accessible way for children and teenagers. Mi’kmawey Debert Cultural Centre has an extensive guide about Teaching About the Mi'kmaq (pdf). This activity is one of our Indigenous perspectives content pieces. More to come. This activity is one of our Inquiry-tools (activities that encourage students to think about what they know and how they learn).

Transform ideas and information to create original texts, using various genres, forms, structures, and styles Students are expected to be able to do the following:
Use Social Studies inquiry processes and skills to ask questions; gather, interpret, and analyze ideas (including legal concepts, issues, and procedures); and communicate findings and decisions
Assess and compare the significance and impact of the experiences of Indigenous peoples in Canada’s history (significance)

A wide variety of BC, Canadian, and global First Peoples texts
A wide variety of text forms and genres
Common themes in First Peoples literature (i.e., ways in which Indigenous peoples and communities have been impacted by colonial laws, policies, and history, like the overrepresentation of Indigenous people in prison)
Reconciliation in Canada (i.e., how Gladue rights relate to the concept of reconciliation and the “Calls to Action” of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, particularly 30–32)

Examples of colonial laws and policies, and aspects of colonialism that have affected Indigenous peoples (e.g., residential schools)
Ways in which Indigenous people and communities have been impacted by colonial laws, policies, and history (e.g., overrepresentation of Indigenous people in Canadian prisons)
What Gladue rights are and how they fit into Canada’s criminal justice system (i.e., when sentencing an Indigenous person, the judge is obliged to take that person’s circumstances into account)
How Gladue rights relate to the concept of reconciliation and the “Calls to Action” of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (particularly 30–32) Big Ideas Texts and stories about the impacts of colonialism and possibilities of reconciliation provide insight into key aspects of Canada’s past, present, and future. Texts and stories about the impacts of Canada’s colonial history play a role within the process of reconciliation. The exploration of text and story deepens understanding of one’s identity, others, and the world, including:
how aspects of Canada’s colonial history have led to current disparities between Indigenous peoples and other Canadians, and
how attempts to address the impacts of colonialism are an aspect of reconciliation. Colonial laws, policies, and history affected Indigenous peoples in history and continue to have consequences for Indigenous people and communities today. Reconciliation, which involves the transformation of Canadian society, takes many forms, including the criminal justice system’s recognition of Gladue rights. Canada’s colonial history and its ongoing impact has led to loss of culture and identity for many Indigenous people. It has led to significant educational, income, health, and social disparities between Indigenous peoples and other Canadians, including an overrepresentation of Indigenous people in prison.

Description
This unit is designed to be highly adaptable to the needs of the teacher and their class. The activities can be applied to any short story. You can read multiple short stories in a row and wrap up the unit with the "Book Talks" lesson, or you can read a single short story and move on to other subjects. The projects should take students a full week to complete and they should be able to do them mostly independently. This model works well for asynchronous distance learning. However, the activities will easily transfer into the face-to-face classroom.

This summative format asks students to choose a previously completed activity to expand upon and/or transform to create their summative piece. In tandem, students are also asked to select – from a curated list of relevant competencies – which they wish to develop/focus on throughout their project. Through the student’s proposal and the teacher’s feedback on this proposal, student and teacher co-create the criteria of where and how each student will demonstrate their competencies to me. This summative structure was originally created for a sonnets unit, however, it can be adapted for many different units and subjects.

Description
These documents take a bit of time to introduce, but quickly become a staple for the English classroom. Based on research and various resources, I have put together a strategy to get students thinking and connecting with what they read. The guide helps to get students started with the concept of close reading, and the dialogue journal is to be used for longer works and/or works that cannot be written on. I recommend taking time to teach the subject-specific vocabulary and doing a guided practice of annotating. For the annotations, you can give a minimum number for the annotations themselves and/or the number of categories. To prepare for an essay, I have also directed students to have a certain number of annotations that can be used as evidence in their writing.

Description
Most people don’t realize that British Columbia has the richest biodiversity of any province or territory in Canada. Biodiversity can be measured in many ways, but the simplest way to measure it is by species richness—the number of species present. Within our species-rich territory, there are many species at risk, and in most cases, human activity is responsible for the decline of wildlife populations.
