1 Introduce the Issue
Teachers bring in articles or reading and connect to prior learning. In my activity the issue we were investigating was stereotypes in Canada towards First Nations peoples. Students read articles and shared back to the class. Lots of class disucssion.
2 Students create sayings
In this part of the activity, students work together to create saying that help portray their learning in the form of an 'action'. Example: "I never say lowest man on the totem pole, because totem poles are a very sacred symbol".
3 Create Images
Students use Canva (or another image creation tool) to take photographs they have taken (or found) and put the words of their saying over top of it. They download the images they create.
Once students have created their images, the teacher can create a gallery of these images on a blog or a gallery such as Hightail Spaces. Teachers can also tweet out the images as part of their campaign for social change.
