There is nothing better to study the history of a place. Yogi's photos demonstrate a long history, unavailable in such a young country as Canada, yet there is much to learn about demographics, sociology, and teacher can integrate math and art into such a unit of study.
Symbols and rituals around burial traditions, cultural beliefs. It can be tied in with such studies.
With such a packed curriculum in Ontario, there is little time for the studies we used to do.

Happy to have been a teacher.
In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less, because passing civilization along from one generation to the next ought to be the highest honor and the highest responsibility anyone could have. -Lee Iacocca, automobile executive (b. 1924)

This blog is based on my 25 years as a teacher in Ottawa, and a couple of years with NNDSB. I have time to reflect and put my experiences and opinions out there for others. Teaching is a collective experience, best shared. Visit my resume for more about my teaching background and credentials.
