Series of Pedagogical Activities for Grades 5, 6 and Secondary IV students
This series includes four different pedagogical activities concerning Naskapi history from a Naskapi perspective. These activities are conceived to be spread over one school year, with the objective for students to make links between each activity. They respect a progression of learnings in accordance with a Naskapi on-the-land pedagogy. That implies that same teachings can be taught for different ages and it is up to the learner to interpret these learnings, since learning takes place over time. That also implies teachings can be at different each time, considering they spontaneously happen.
Each activity focuses on specific competencies included in Social Sciences subject area of the Québec Education Program (QEP). The activities concern Geography, History and Citizenship Education course for Elementary Cycle 3 (Grades 5 and 6), and History of Québec and Canada course for Secondary IV (Grade 10). These choices are related to the historical periods covered by the QEP, including the period from 1800 to now for Elementary Cycle 3, and the period from 1840 to now for Secondary IV.
It is also possible to adapt these activities for students in other courses, for example with Naskapi culture program offered at Jimmy Sandy Memorial School.
