Atlas des peuples autochtones du Canada
Format: Hardcover
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; Métis; Inuit; First Nations;
Grade Levels: 8; 9; 10; 11; 12; University/College;

This is the French edition of Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada.

Indigenous perspectives much older than the nation itself shared through maps, artwork, history, and culture.

The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, in partnership with Canada's national Indigenous organizations, has created a groundbreaking four-volume atlas that shares the experiences, perspectives, and histories of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. It's an ambitious and unprecedented project inspired by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Calls to Action. Exploring themes of language, demographics, economy, environment and culture, with in-depth coverage of treaties and residential schools, these are stories of Canada's Indigenous Peoples, told in detailed maps and rich narratives.

This extraordinary project offers Canada a step on the path toward understanding.

The volumes contain more than 48 pages of reference maps, content from more than 50 Indigenous writers; hundreds of historical and contemporary photographs and a glossary of Indigenous terms, timelines, map of Indigenous languages, and frequently asked questions. All packaged together in a beautifully designed protective slipcase.

Educator Information

De Temps Immemorial: Les Premiers Habitants de la Côte Nord-Ouest du Pacifique
Format: Paperback

From Time Immemorial provides an honest and up-to-date survey of the history of the coastal First Nations from pre-contact to the present. The culture of the coastal people was highly complex. Although there were many similarities, there were also many differences among the groups who shared the wealth of their life-sustaining environment.

This book provides a broad overview of traditional ways common to a large number of diverse groups. It encourages readers to learn more about particular groups who, long ago, walked the shorelines and forest trails of the Pacific Northwest.

Décoloniser le Canada: 50 ans de militantisme autochtone
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian;
Grade Levels: 12; University/College;

« Je ne souhaite pas célébrer un Canada qui vole nos terres. » C’est en ces termes que s’exprimait Arthur Manuel à la veille du début des célébrations autour du 150e anniversaire de la Confédération canadienne, quelque temps avant de rendre l’âme le 17 janvier 2017. Ce cri du coeur d’une des figures les plus importantes du réveil militant autochtone des 50 dernières années illustre à merveille ce que ce mouvement cherche à nous rappeler quotidiennement : il est temps d’en finir avec la nature coloniale de l’État canadien.Fruit d’une collaboration unique entre deux grands leaders et défenseurs des droits des Premières Nations, soit Arthur Manuel, militant et intellectuel de la nation Secwepemc, et le Grand Chef Ron Derrickson, six fois élu chef de bande de Westbank et un des entrepreneurs autochtones les plus prospères et respectés au pays, Décoloniser le Canada est d’abord le récit de cinquante ans de militantisme autochtone. Cinquante années pendant lesquelles nous avons assistées au réveil autochtone venu rappeler le triste sort réservé aux descendants des premiers habitants de ce pays.Dans ce récit narré au je par Arthur Manuel, un des plus réputés et ardents défenseurs de la cause autochtone sur les scènes nationale et internationale, on revient sur son parcours qui fut étroitement lié à ce que l’auteur et essayiste John Saul a qualifié de « grand retour » des Autochtones et de leurs luttes sur la scène politique. Récit qui retrace le parcours personnel et militant de Manuel, c’est aussi le portrait du renouveau des mouvements de lutte autochtone au pays depuis les années 1970. De la Paix des Braves à la Déclaration des Nations unies sur les droits des peuples autochtones, en passant par le rapatriement de la Constitution en 1982, la crise d’Oka ou les importants jugements de la Cour suprême ayant considérablement renforcé les revendications des peuples autochtones, on y revisite de grands pans de l’histoire canadienne des cinquante dernières années. Ouvrage de vulgarisation historique écrit dans une langue vivante et accessible, il est la porte d’entrée idéale pour quiconque souhaite s’ouvrir aux réalités autochtones, mais aussi revisiter notre passé récent.Ce livre sage, éclairant et tout à fait accessible ne peut que renforcer et approfondir notre compréhension des questions autochtones. Comme le résume bien Naomi Klein dans sa préface : « Entremêlant l’histoire et la politique aux récits personnels d’une famille haute en couleur, truffée de chefs et de guérisseurs, Arthur Manuel propose un tableau unique du douloureux parcours qui nous a conduits au contexte actuel. Son livre offre également un cours intensif sur les notions juridiques et les droits fondamentaux qui seront de précieux outils dans notre marche commune. »

Fun Learning Activities for Modern Foreign Languages Book/CD: A Complete Toolkit for Ensuring Engagement, Progress and Achievement
Authors:
Jake Hunton

Students learning modern foreign languages often comment that it is just too hard to learn, and remember, all of vocabulary presented to them. Yes, there is a lot of content that needs to be covered, and a lot of vocabulary that needs to be learned. But there is a way of making this process engaging and motivating. Language lessons needn't be full of grammar worksheets, endless drilling and rote learning lists of vocabulary.

Learning languages isn't always fun and games. But these aren't games; they are fun learning activities. And they can help revolutionise language teaching; enabling teachers to authoritatively impart knowledge while fostering a thirst for knowledge and love of learning in their students.

First, the Vocab Fun Learning Activities (VFLAs) - learn the vocabulary in ways which will improve recognition and recall. Then, the Fun Learning Activities - use this vocabulary knowledge to build sentences and paragraphs; explore and use this language while keeping the whole class engaged and actively learning. The activities are designed to encourage all students to participate and learn more through enjoyment. Based on the author's extensive classroom experience, and underpinned by research into how students learn best, each activity comes complete with a detailed explanation and plenty of ideas for variations, differentiations and extensions. The activities come with example vocabulary lists in French, German and Spanish as a starting point, which are also available on the CD-ROM. However, the activities will work effectively in any language and with any vocabulary list of the teacher's choosing, and can be adapted to suit every topic, learning objective and age range. Discover ready to use activities which will make for outstanding lessons in every class and ensure engagement, motivation, rapport, progress and attainment over time.
