Full Project Summary
Derek Taylor is very excited to be part of the Canada 150 theme which celebrates our country’s history. We would like to take it one step further and bring it to a Canada 150 plus theme and recognize the history of our indigenous people and explore how it extends beyond 150 years making us all a part of a unified Canada.
Our sub-themes include the history of our local community and how students are embracing inclusion by continuing to be lifelong learners of how diversity makes our nation strong. All students will be involved in developing a script from the knowledge they have gained about their chosen historical group in Canada.
Project OutcomeOur objective is to learn about Canada’s origin and the cultural mosaic which has shaped our society. Individual classes will work with various cultural groups in order to showcase the events which have shaped our Canada today. This objective will create a deeper understanding of our country’s heritage and our diversity.
