Animating Media Literacy
Rating

We know that the everyday lives of our students are inundated with media. This often-overwhelming menu of media-rich entrées gets served up at a rate that seems to value overconsumption more than proper and meaningful digestion. As educators, we may be left wondering, how do we beef up (or tofu up , if you prefer) our students’ appetites for media-literacy so that they can skillfully navigate our ever-changing, media-saturated landscape?

Collaborative Story Writing
Unrestricted Use

Rating

After reading several books from the My Weird School Series by Dan Gutman, my classroom decided that it would be fun to create our own weird school story. We had decided from the beginning that the main character of our story would be our colony supervisor, Mrs. Barclay. Since all titles in the Weird School Series rhyme, we thought it was only appropriate to also have a title that rhymed and so the class created Mrs. Barclay is Sparkly.

This project was a collaborative effort. We knew that we wanted each grade to have their own chapter in the story. Each group of students was responsible for brainstorming ideas for their chapter. I then helped them develop their ideas into a chapter. Each grade was also responsible for providing the illustrations for their chapters.

Indigenous concept of c̓isḷa - short video and student activity
Rating

>> Media Description | 5 minutes
For millennia, the Haíɫzaqv have depended on the seasonal cycles that bring ocean resources to the coast. Every generation learns to harvest in a sustainable way. But now these resources are dwindling. And it's up to us—all of us—to work together to put things back in balance. If you like this content you can see all of the available resources in the Harvest module in the Ocean School Help Centre (https://help.oceanschool.nfb.ca/educational-resources/module-guides/the-harvest-module-guide).

>> Activity Description | 45 minutes
Balancing act "c̓isḷa" comic activity. Students learn more about c̓isḷa—the act of looking after and taking care of something important. Students then create a comic that illustrates people taking care of and giving back to nature.

>> About the Indigenous content
This content was filmed and developed on unceded Haíɫzaqv homelands and waterways in direct collaboration with members of the Haíɫzaqv Nation. The Haíɫzaqv are an Indigenous Nation living in (what is currently) Canada's province of British Columbia (http://www.heiltsuknation.ca/about-2/territory/). We are sincerely grateful to the Haíɫzaqv Nation for allowing Ocean School to be guests in their territory, for sharing their stories and knowledge, and for collaborating with us for this module. All Haíɫzaqv language use in Ocean School content is overseen by the Heiltsuk Integrated Resource Management Department (https://www.hirmd.ca/).
