The BC Treaty Commission and the Surrey School District are pleased to announce the release of a comprehensive wiki web site that works hand-in-hand with ministry-approved video, Nisga'a Dancing in Both Worlds. The teacher-driven educational resource, nisgaatreaty.wikispaces.com, features:
The lesson plans are designed so that teachers can screen the 44-minute video in a series of clips, or show the video in its entirety depending on what works better for their classroom. While the Nisga'’a video and lesson plans were developed specifically for the Social Studies 11 curriculum, the resources are also relevant to Social Studies 10, First Nations 12 and Social Justice 12.
In October 2004, the Treaty Commission partnered with FORED BC to provide important treaty information to teachers across British Columbia and help them promote awareness of treaty making in highschools. The result of this partnership is Exploring Aboriginal Culture: Then and Now, a learning resource kit approved for classroom use by both the BC Teacher's Federation and the BC Ministry of Education.
