Cross-Curricular Collaboration: Aboriginal Stories Project

Using inquiry skills, and with an emphasis on Canadian Aboriginal history and storytelling skills, this year, grade 9 Guildford Park students interviewed members of the Aboriginal community and used what they learned to create stories, textually and visually.  This project was based on work presented by Petra Willemse from Seycove Secondary School at the STA Convention 2 years ago.  In this workshop, we will discuss how we collaborated to put this project together including successes and things we would do differently.  We will share sample work as well as the resources and lessons we developed to scaffold skills and prepare the students for working with the Elders.
