Canadian Identity Symbols

Posted on

What does it mean to be Canadian? What do we identify ourselves with? What symbol do you think of when you think Canada? These are the questions that were posed to our class and created discussion. Read what my students think are some of  Canada’s most significant identity symbols. Feel free to agree or disagree with their thinking!

The Wretched Stone by Chris Van Allsburg

Posted on

This great book poses more questions than it answers! The question I want you to try and answer is: What could the “Wretched Stone” be a symbol of or represent in our everyday lives? Supply evidence from the text and justify that evidence with your own ideas.

I look forward to reading your ideas.
