Description
The Wealth Inequity Lesson Demonstration (WILD) is a game meant to be played by upper level high school students to support an exploration of global trade relationships. This project was created as a final assignment for a second year Education class at Vancouver Island University (VIU) under the direction and guidance of professor Paula Waatainen. WILD was created to demonstrate how different countries around the globe have different trade capabilities and natural resources available to them. This game highlights how affluent countries will perpetually prosper, while developing countries will struggle to fulfil their resource needs.

Description
Ce cahier de 13 pages comprend des exercices prêts à être imprimés qui peuvent être utilisés ensemble ou séparément et leur clé de correction. L’accent est mis sur le développement du vocabulaire et l’analyse des personnages ainsi que l’apprentissage d’éléments relatifs à l’histoire des francophones au Canada. Puisque le roman se déroule en 1786 en grande partie sur la côte ouest de ce qui est maintenant le Canada et fait constamment référence à l’histoire acadienne en Atlantique, il ouvre la porte à l’étude des grands explorateurs francophone comme La Pérouse, l’histoire acadienne, mais aussi celle de l’empire espagnol et l’effet de la surpêche sur la loutre de mer. Le cahier suggère donc des activités complémentaires pour explorer ces données.

Description
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.

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)

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.

There are two lesson packages - one on the BC Election Process and Voting, and the other on Parliamentary Democracy and the Role of MLAs. The BC Election Process and Voting Lesson Package provides newcomers with essential information needed to participate in a provincial election. A voting simulation activity provides participants with an opportunity to experience each step of the act of voting as if they were at a physical voting station. The Parliamentary Democracy and the Role of MLAs Lesson Package gives newcomers a more in-depth understanding of the democratic process in BC, as well as the role of an MLA in representing constituents. The lesson packages teach adult immigrant and refugee English language learners how to participate in the democratic process when they become eligible as Canadian citizens.

In this activity, students are asked to reflect upon their own experience with dividing tasks. The students watch two short videos to learn about how government responsibilities are divided and about the impact these divisions have on elections in Canada. Students then deepen their understanding by completing activities at different learning stations, to explore the three levels of government and the different aspects that occur with elections on each level. Finally, students consolidate their understanding through both class discussion and personal reflection; and, are encouraged to explore how they can actively engage in the electoral process.

Students should have some general knowledge about World War I, and in particular the causes of WWI. It would also be beneficial if the students had some cursory knowledge of the concept of nationalism. The students start by watching speeches by Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin to detect nationalism in their speeches. Then the students read a primer on nationalism to further inform their thinking. Lastly, the students will read three nationalistic speeches by Georges Clemenceau, Lloyd George, and Kaiser Wilhelm. As the students are reading they should fill out the Nationalistic Speeches Handout. Once they are done, they will pick the speech they find most convincing and justify their choice. This lesson can be split up and delivered online or hard copy. I provide a single-point rubric, but you may wish to change it to your own liking. Feel free to modify.

This activity is designed to have students consider what it would be like for various people to live during the Great Depression. Three cases are presented, representing low to high income individuals and their families. Students can investigate 1-3 case studies and compare/contrast between them. The discussion questions can be modified to fit the number of cases the student will be analyzing. This can also be done in pairs or triads, with each student creating a budget for one case. Students can complete this activity and submit it online. Or print the answers out and send/scan/photograph them and submitting them digitally or in print. I use a single point rubric, but any other assessment can be easily inserted in.

Description
The following activities were designed to have students use experiential inquiry to engage them in exploring the Yale Historic Site. I have also included adaptations where you can take these activities and use them off site in a classroom or online. You can also replace the pictures to fit another era or place and still do these activities.

Description
Reading questions, craft activity, and creative writing prompt based on middle-grade adventure novel "Last Chance Island" by BC author Norma Charles—for individual or group learning. Book Description: Two very different stories intersect with surprising results. Two African children, Kalu and his cousin, Aisha, escape from their village after it's destroyed by rebel soldiers. The kids flee to the coast where they find work on a fishing boat bound for Britain . . . until the nervous fisherman abandons them on Last Chance Island off the coast of Ireland. Meanwhile, Spike, a Canadian teen, finds out that her father has died, and she is being sent to live with a distant relative, a woman who tends the lighthouse on Last Chance Island. Spike can't wait to escape and join a troupe of musicians she's met in Dublin. But one day, she discovers the two stranded kids in desperate need of help. Will she change her plans to try to save them? Book Trailer: https://youtu.be/5qqwAPgEJ9I
