As part of the South Asian Canadian Legacy Project, a series of activity plans have been developed by B.C. educators with a focus on history, culture, and heritage. These activity plans span K-12, and while some are Social Studies focussed, others explore ways of bringing Social Studies competencies, stories and content into curricular areas that include math, food studies, language and arts education.
In this session, you will be able to review and assess our upcoming activity plans, sign up to pilot the resources (if interested) and have a larger discussion about the role of Social Studies competencies and content in critically important curricular areas.
This session will be inquiry-driven and will leverage breakout rooms and shared documents.
