The Secondary resources have been designed to align with the updated Social Studies Grades 11 & 12 and the Environmental Science Grades 11 & 12 BC curriculum and take an inquiry-based approach to exploring themes of collaborative planning and research, Indigenous Knowledge, marine planning, and stewardship. The lesson plans, film clips and resources provide a framework for educators to facilitate a unit of study. Activities and implementation strategies provided can easily be tailored to fit your local environment and learner curiosity.
For each lesson educators will find sections outlining required materials, lesson context and learning outcomes, step-by-step instructions for suggested activities, extensions and assessment ideas as well as black line masters. A Teacher Background section is included for each lesson, highlighting additional background content for educators. Both units provide an opportunity to specifically look at First Peoples’ perspectives and worldviews, and embed these perspectives into all aspects of student learning.
