"There’s no doubt that mothers and other caregivers are important figures in our lives. They teach us, guide us, influence us, and cheer us on. Note that not all of us have mothers in the traditional sense and may turn to other family members or loved ones for advice, support, or encouragement. So, this Mother’s Day, let us celebrate not only the women who gave birth to us but also the amazing role models who have enriched our lives."

Enough is Enough is a powerful 30-minute performance tailored to Saskatchewan Ministry of Education learning outcomes in Social Studies, Music, and English Language Arts for grades 9-12.
*A full teacher's guide is available to download.
Zoey Roy’s explains that:
Enough is Enough unravels what we think we know about Indigenous people in the context of Canada and rebuild a collective understanding of how we can learn from Indigenous knowledge and spirituality to make our home in Canada better for everyone. Inspired by my own pursuit of self-love, healing, and joy. The following lessons are steppingstones – a pathway for engaging the whole human self in learning and growing. Along my journey, I learned, you can’t think your way out of a broken heart. I want people to know that they are enough, to feel that they are enough, and to know that all people, animals, plants, minerals, and emotions all have a place in this world just like you. They are all enough too. Our journey is not theirs, so our judgements have no place in their journey. I want this unit to inspire compassion, will, solidarity and love.

1 in 5 Canadians Experience Mental Illness in Any Given Year. We All Know Someone. And yet, one of the biggest issues in our health care system – and society at large – is that mental health is not taken as seriously, and treated as urgently, as physical health. But when you hear the stories, and see the impact mental illness has on the lives of so many around us, it's hard to stand idly by. Together, we can and must change the way mental health is treated not just in Canada, but around the world. We invite you all to join the movement. Watch the videos. Share the content. Donate now.

Supporting First Nations, Métis and Inuit Youth to make Positive Changes in their Communities: A Guide for Educators and Youth Program Facilitators
Students will learn ‘through’ the development and implementation of their action projects, rather than ‘about’ action.
Action projects develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that are central to many youth programs. Action projects: • develop communication skills • foster critical thinking skills • promote leadership skills • help young people to identify things that are important to them and support them to think through the process required to make positive change • offer opportunities for young people to experience meaningful success • offer youth an opportunity to learn about and understand FNMI spiritual teachings, including the teaching that all living beings have a Spirit

Slow Reveal Graph (#slowrevealgraph) is an instructional routine that promotes sensemaking about data. This highly engaging routine uses scaffolded visuals and discourse to help students (in K-12 and beyond) make sense of data. As more and more of the graph is revealed, students refine their interpretation and construct meaning, often in surprising ways. This routine increases access for students without sacrificing rigor or engagement.
You will find all types of graphs for all ages of learners from elementary to high school.
Here are the steps: - It starts with a graph that has been stripped of context: its numbers, its labels, its title. - The teacher facilitates a discussion around what students notice and wonder. (The slides give discussion suggestions) - Then another slide is revealed. - Students identify what information is new. - Then another slide is revealed. - Again, students identify what information is new (the title) and discuss how this changes their understanding of the graph. - As more slides are added, more insight into this data representation is revealed.
The introductory page for the graph also offers more information about the context for this graph, other content connections, and paired texts for students to explore.
