PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Everything you need for an engaging COMPLETE unit on Multiculturalism (focused on US and Canada). 5E Model based for easy lesson planning!

Unit includes: 4 PowerPoints presentations, 7 student handouts, 1 graphic organizer, 1 rubric, a teacher answer key, and a Teacher Quick Reference Guide

1. ENGAGE: Four Pics, One Word
Grab students’ attention with this fun engage activity based on the popular app “4 Pics, 1 Word”. Students must use critical thinking skills to find the common connection between the four different pictures. A graphic organizer and student activity to go with the lesson are included. Students will remember these vocab words!

2. EXPLORE: Why is the USA diverse?
Force students to think about their own beliefs on immigration with an engaging self-reflective survey. The lesson then focuses on our shared reality of being ancestors of immigrants and the effects that has had on the USA. A handout is included for students to complete captions on a cartoon about their family’s cultural contributions to multicultural America.

3. EXPLAIN: An Introduction to Multiculturalism
Guide students through an introduction to Multiculturalism that is perfect for note-taking with Interactive Notebooks. Keep students engaged with “Think About It” slides which encourage class discussion and participation. This presentation provides definitions and examples for 11 vocabulary words. Fill-in-the-blank notes are provided for modified students or to move more quickly through the lesson. A two-sided handout allows students to apply their understanding of the new concepts, instead of simply memorizing the words.

4. ELABORATE:- Multiculturalism in Canada
They speak FRENCH in Canada?!?! Teach students about Quebec, Canada and the issues of multiculturalism that have arisen in the area. A PowerPoint presentation includes lots of "Think About It" slides to encourage student discussion and a video clip is embedded. As students consider the conflict, they must choose a side to support in the secession debate and justify why they agree with that point of view.

5. EVALUATE- Solve a Real World Problem
The United Nations needs help! Your students will propose solutions to real conflicts around the world in this thought-provoking activity. Students imagine they have been commissioned to submit a proposal to the UN with 3 innovative ideas that may help bring peace to the situation. They find examples of conflict and cooperation in the news, summarize the information, and write a proposal. This activity is a great way to include current events and research skills into a tight curriculum.
