Anne Frank and the Courage of Upstanders

Suggested Levels: Grades 7-10. This project, centred around Anne Frank and her family during WWII, sets the stage to discuss and explore the idea of Upstanders from the contexts of History, Geography and Language Arts. This project is also a great jumping-off point for discussions of current-day upstanders, allowing you to incorporate current events and further engage your learners. It has also been designed, from the ground up, to take advantage of our beautiful Theater Mode, for whole class exploration, sharing and discussion.

Layering in Short Stories

In this krispii byte, students will explore and develop an understanding of the importance of layering.

They have an opportunity to follow the progress of a writer developing a short story in which he reveals his writing process on the page. The writer develops a basic idea (character, setting and potential mood) into an actual short story.

Students will discuss with their peers the process that they observe and also experiment with layering on their own as they attempt to follow the model provided by the writer.

Les détectives du passé

Ce projet permettra d’initier les élèves à la compréhension des répercussions que les évènements historiques peuvent avoir au fil du temps.

Les élèves joueront le rôle d’historien et tenteront d’interpréter des documents relatant un évènement historique du milieu des années 1900. Vers la fin du projet, une vidéo sera présentée aux élèves. Elle leur permettra de valider leur analyse des documents concernant le déroulement des évènements.

Ce projet est l’occasion pour les élèves de déduire l’enchaînement logique de certains moments passés, d’explorer différents scénarios et d’appuyer leurs interprétations avec l’information qui leur est présentée sous diverses formes.
