PRESCRIBED LEARNING OUTCOMES
It is expected that students will:
• describe how different forms of artistic expression reflect the society in which they are produced
• analyse roots of present-day regional, cultural, and social issues within Canada
SUGGESTED INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES
• As a class, brainstorm world views portrayed in stories and myths that are shared by members of various cultures. Invite students to create and present their own stories.
• Using a jigsaw format, have students work in groups to compare the artistic expression of northwest coast Aboriginal peoples with the hunter-gatherer societies of British Columbia’s interior regions.
