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
"Secret Path" was written by Gord Downie and illustrated by Jeff Lemire and illustrates the hardship and history of residential schooling in Canada . This book was inspired by an Anishinaabe boy named Chanie Wenjack who ran away from his residential school in 1966 and died on the way to his home with the Marten Falls First Nation. The story is a graphic novel accompanied by a soundtrack written by Downie, and was released in October of 2016. The release of the book was followed by an hour long special on CBC that tells the story in animation with the soundtrack. All of the proceeds from the book, album, and performance will go to the National Center for Truth and Reconciliation. Here are some ideas for centers/stations that could compliment the use of Secret Path as a resource in text, soundtrack and film forms. The book has immense possibilities and because of its graphic novel form it could be adapted to suit the needs (and appropriateness) of a variety of grades and subjects.
