Title : Importance of teaching local authors in middle and senior years
Description : This presentation will focus on the importance of teaching locally developed texts and local authors. Texts by Ian Ross, Gordon Sinclair, Kate Vermette, and more, become catalysts that support discussion and provoke critical thinking in students. Texts should be linked to authentic activities that give meaning and purpose to learning. The use of debate, mock trials, demonstrations, community service projects, propaganda experiments, talk shows and social media provide color to the study of all genres, engage all six of the strands and provide a unique forum for students to address themes, topics and issues, especially those relating to social justice.
