Description
To mark the centennial of the first achievements of women’s suffrage in Canada, Historica Canada (the country’s largest organization dedicated to enhancing awareness of Canada’s history and citizenship) has created this Education Guide. Developed in line with the concepts created by Dr. Peter Seixas and the Historical Thinking Project, this Guide complements Canadian middle-school and high-school curricula. It invites students to deepen their understanding of gender equality and democracy through research and analysis, engaging discussion questions, and group activities. It asks students to examine issues of identity, equity, activism and justice in historical and contemporary contexts.

Description
Everyone has a unique story to share. Stories help us learn about ourselves, our families, and other people. Curiosity and wonder leads us to new discoveries about ourselves and the world around us. By reading “And Tango Makes Three”, we not only learn about penguins and the penguin life cycle, but about other family structures (i.e. same-sex families) and how same-sex couples can become parents. This lesson plan can be used cross-curricula with Socials, PHE, ELA, and may also be used in Science (i.e. if combined with a stronger focus on the penguin life cycle, habitat, etc.)

Description
Opioids are powerful drugs related to chemicals derived from the poppy plant that have been used for centuries to relieve pain. Some examples of opioids are heroin, morphine, opium and codeine. Even though they were discovered centuries ago, opioids are still among the most effective pain relievers available to physicians for treating pain. This instructional outline aims to engage students to think critically about the use of opioid pain medications, as well as the benefits and risks associated with them.

Description
Jalal ad-Din Rumi (aka Rumi) was a 13th-century Sufi poet and mystic. Rumi was also a professor, husband and father. Sufism is a mystical branch of Islam, a religion which emerged in Arabia in the 7th century at a time when excessive wealth from the spice trade, overuse of alcohol and other behaviours were affecting family relationships and tribal customs. The Qur’an (the holy book for Islam) says of wine and gambling, “In them is great sin, and some profit, for men; but the sin is greater than the profit.” Many Islamic societies went on to adopt formal rules against alcohol use. But like all major religions, there has always been great variation in beliefs and behaviours among followers of Islam. This lesson plan aims to engage students in a dialogue about alcohol and drug use through the analysis of Rumi's poem.
