This week in our learning, we compared the economic, political and social well-being of the major social groups in Canada across the last 200 years of our history. We determined whether or not the well-being of each group had changed over time, or had stayed the same, and speculated on some of the reasons for those changes (or lack of) based on our own research.
Short week this week leading up to Student-Led conferences on Wednesday, April 17th. We have spent the majority of it considering the economic, political and social well-being of the major social groups in Canada. This activity is aimed a wrapping up our inquiry into Belonging and help us to transition our thinking into our final study of the year.
Hope to see you all at Student-Led conferences on Wednesday!
This week we have been synthesizing our learning about the impact of immigration on Canadian identity, and beginning to examine these ideas through the lens of the experience of other groups, particularly that of Indigenous people of Canada. We have begun the early parts of this exploration through the short screenplay "Words on a Page". Some questions about the key ideas in the text are helping us to bring our ideas together.
