Presentation by Shashi Shergill
Thursday, March 2, 2017 at 3:00 pm CT
About the webinar:
This webinar examines treaty relationships through an inquiry into the historical relationship between aboriginal and non-aboriginal people in Canada. The presenter will share how grade 9 students deepened their understanding of aboriginal perspectives, specifically the affirmation of collective rights through an examination of treaty rights and research into historically significant events that impacted the relationship and Canadian society. The project focused on specific curricular outcomes of assessing, critically how the increased demand for recognition of collective rights has impacted the legislative process in Canada, and equally importantly, taking up issues of aboriginal perspectives, citizenship, diversity, pluralism, and social cohesion as identified through the Alberta Social Studies Program of Studies.
