This unit provides an opportunity for teachers and students to select from a mix of dramatic texts (stage plays, screenplays, films) that reflect First Peoples themes and perspectives. Opportunities for memorization (internalization) of text and for polishing of oral delivery skills are one important aspect of the unit. Students are also encouraged to reflect on the production realities associated with these types of texts.

Description
This project is a process by which students learn about a First Peoples issue or topic and communicate their knowledge to others. Many students are unaware that their lives are inextricably linked with the lives of First Peoples all over the world. We all live on the planet, we all share in the resources of the earth, and we must all take responsibility for our actions. Nobody can live in isolation. The world will be a better place when all of us work together to make it so. By doing this research project, students will become spokespersons for an ethical, humane, and fair Earth. The range of topics covered shows the students that everybody has a role to play in making the world a wholesome and happy place to live. We all must come to understand each other.

Description
The poetry chosen for study in this unit is primarily written in English, although some of the poets include words and lines from songs in their native languages. Students will hear voices from many diverse First Peoples communities but they will easily recognize a commonality of world view in the themes of the poems: respect for and appreciation of the natural environment, the importance of relations with family and community, trust in the wisdom of Elders, the power that comes from the spirit world, and the devastating impact of colonization. Students will also recognize that the structures and poetic devices used in crafting this poetry is similar to poetry written by non-First Peoples writers, but that the voices of the poets and their imagery is distinctly different.

Description
This unit is designed as a series of parts loosely based on literary form; there are parts for drama, film, radio, and written text. Primarily, humour is found in the performance form, hence the focus on performance; humour found in the written form is more subtle. This unit can be taught in conjunction with the Trickster Unit; however, the units exist as separate entities. The trickster figure appears in many literary forms; sometimes he is funny, sometimes not. To link together the Humour and Trickster Units, there is a cumulative concept map assignment (see Unit 11: Trickster) to which students may add as each part is completed. The idea of a concept map can be very difficult for students to grasp however, so the idea is introduced in the Only Drunks and Children Tell the Truth lessons on a smaller scale, and is revisited again on an even smaller scale as a plot outline in Humour in the Written Form.

Description
Identity is a frequently explored theme in Aboriginal literature; as such, identity can easily become the focus for studying many texts. In this unit, Richard Wagamese’s novel Keeper’n Me is the central text studied by all students in the class, using a literature circle technique. Other texts such as short stories, poetry, and essays can also be examined in order to enrich the theme of identity begun by reading the novel. In order to allow students reading time between literature circle sessions, the other literary forms are presented as parts, or strands, of the unit. The following “Scope and Sequence” chart is included as a suggested approach for conducting a thematic unit on identity using multiple texts, though all parts of the unit need not be taught.

The introductory unit sets the context for the course, with a particular emphasis on establishing awareness of First Peoples pedagogy and of the key features that make this course unique. Given the unique nature of this course, it is important for the teacher to establish a classroom environment that is welcoming and supportive. This unit includes a variety of activities for teachers to work with, including opportunities for community building, establishing the ground rules for respectful contribution and handling conflict, understanding and beginning to work with First Peoples’ pedagogical approaches, and much more. Much of the work of this unit involves students participating in small and large group discussion, as well personal response writing.

The Métis have often been called The Forgotten People because they have been marginalized in history through exclusion from the governmental financial structures that feature in First Nations communities, and from broad treaty-land claims processes. Often there is a lot of confusion about who the Métis were and are. This introduction will give students and teachers a sense of Métis history and culture from the historic fur trading days to contemporary times as well as raise broader questions about nationhood and personal identity.

Description
Using Eden Robinson’s novel Monkey Beach as a primary text, the students will explore the issue of lost people that is so resonant in First Peoples communities; beyond the novel, students will have the opportunity to examine other texts such as short stories, poetry, and essays that complement this theme. When studying the novel, the instructional methods will focus on literature circles (small-group, student-centred approach to the novel that allows all students in the class to have a voice) and reader response (writing to learn, not always as a finished, polished draft). When studying the other texts, the instructional methods will be a mixture of large-group and small-group activities that invite student voice for interpretation.

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.”

Description
First, students look at the bow and compare the force required to pull back the bow string a certain distance. Students determine the linear relationship between force applied and draw distance using Hooke’s Law, will record data in a table, graph the relationship, determine the spring constant for the bow they are using, and answer one step algebra equations using Hooke’s Law. Then students are provided with the opportunity to see the connection between non-Aboriginal math and science concepts and the traditional management of Aboriginal territories. This unit can be used to help students achieve the following Prescribed Learning Outcomes for Mathematics 9: B4 explain and illustrate strategies to solve single variable linear inequalities with rational coefficients with a problem-solving context; B2 graph linear relations, analyse the graph, and interpolate or extrapolate to solve problems; B3.

Description
This section examines humour in Ian Ross’s Joe from Winnipeg series that allows for a gentle and personal criticism of social conditions. Ross’s popular “Joe from Winnipet” commentaries were written for CBC radio and television, and have been collected and published in a book series. In his “Joe” series, Ross deals in a light-hearted but insightful way with such issues as moose on the road, little dogs wearing nail polish, Batman and bandaids, Christmas cake, letter glue, odometer checks, immunization, and springrolls. Joe represents Everyman, and this universal appeal is what has made the “Joe” series a success.

Description
The oral tradition includes oral narratives (or stories) that are used to teach skills, transmit cultural values and mores, convey news, record family and community histories, and explain our natural world. Along with narratives, the oral tradition also includes oratory (formal speech) and song. In recent history many oral narratives have been recorded in audio or visual recordings, which have then been transcribed into writing. This unit provides opportunities for students to examine traditional and contemporary applications of oral tradition in First Peoples cultures and to gain an understanding of why the oral tradition is important to humanity.

Description
In this unit, students will learn to identify how animals were and continue to be relied upon and an important part of the lives of First Peoples — furs and skins for clothing and shelter, meat for food, bone and antler for tools and weapons, etc. Sharing stories and teachings from various First Peoples of the province of British Columbia will shed light on the diversity of the peoples, as well as a range of concepts in understanding the important role animals played in the beliefs, traditions and lives of the peoples. The resources used in this unit represent a variety of regions, including the Northwest Coast, Shuswap (Secwepemc), and Nunavut (Inuit), and the relevance of different animals in each location. To supplement these resources, teachers are encouraged to look for relevant oral and printed texts from the local region.

Description
Long ago, First Peoples had an understanding of celestial objects that allowed them to make decisions crucial to sustainability. Through storytelling, the people were able to explain that which might otherwise not be understood. The metaphysical existence of the sun, moon and stars was important and relevant to the people in ways that science today portrays on a different level. Long before modern day scientist and technology, First Peoples relied on celestial objects in many facets of life. These lessons will help students understand the importance of the sun, moon and stars to Aboriginal people.

Description
Students will examine the role(s) of Trickster characters in the literature of First Peoples. Trickster characters come in a variety of forms; this unit will examine three of these Tricksters: Raven, Coyote, and Nanabush. Beginning with an introductory essay on Trickster, the students will explore literature from a variety of genres, including traditional stories, oral stories, short fiction, poetry, and film. The central question to be answered in this unit is “What roles does Trickster play in the literature of First Peoples?” Through the examination of various texts, students will come to understand that Trickster has been used by writers to teach lessons, involve humour, act as a symbol, provide social commentary, and a variety of other purposes. Despite these various purposes, the Trickster characters maintain some essential traits.
