Socials Political Cartoon (A Billion Dollar Trap)

Hello! Here’s my political cartoon along with the supporting writing. It’s kind of small but if you click on it you get a much larger version of it. Thanks! “The ‘plot’ of my cartoon revolves around the 1 billion dollar LNG offer made by Petronas to a Native Canadian community. The company is offering the large amount of money in exchange for the consent of numerous Aboriginal communities as they.. Read More

Political Narrative Document of Learning (Saving our Planet)

Through the course of our study with modern Canadian politics, we looked at various political narratives such as identity, government, economy and geography. It is quite difficult to select only one of these narratives as the most compelling. However, one political narrative that particularly interests me is ‘environment’ (geography). Preserving or improving the condition of our environment is very significant to me and I believe it should be one of.. Read More

Not as Nice as People Think (Initial Document of Learning)

Throughout the course of the socials term, I’ve begun to learn a little bit about the interactions between Aboriginal peoples and European explorers in Canada. Although we’ve begun to talk about this learning outcome extensively in the last few classes, I still feel like we’ve only scratched the surface of it. There is so much to learn that students like myself often begin venturing into this learning outcome as early.. Read More

Sheer Luck (In-Depth Post #8)

I still remember hearing about ‘in-depth’ months before we selected what we wanted to study, and the time has definitely flown by since then. But now that it’s already the month of May, I need to continue building and practicing the routine that I will perform on the night itself. Shortly after my sixth blog post, I once again began debating on whether or not I should perform an alternate.. Read More

Frank’s Socials Midterm

Throughout the course of the socials term, I have engaged in several of the prescribed learning outcomes included in the skills and processes of Social Studies 10. I would also like to begin exploring learning outcomes in sections we have not explored yet, or have not studied comprehensively. PLO A1: Several of the achievement indicators for this learning outcome were investigated in preparation for our classroom debate. Prior to participating in.. Read More

A Hopeful Goodbye

 My final address as Tenskwatawa, a Native American, has been pasted below.  “My ambitions and goals were never achieved. I was born a burden and I died a failure. However, it is unreasonable to say that I never had any high points in my life. My brother, Tecumseh, and I tried to create a united front of Native American tribes. We believed that if Native Americans worked together, we’d be.. Read More

An Aboriginal Confederation

Many, many years have gone by since my last journal entry. Reading it now, I remember stating how I was a freak and how the Shawnee tribe would never learn to respect me. I was certainly wrong. Allow me to explain. About an year after writing that first entry, I fell into a fire and many of my family members considered me dead. However, I was actually put into a trance.. Read More

Disappearing Chopsticks? (In-Depth Post #6)

It’s hard to believe that I’m over the halfway point of my 2015 In-Depth experience! I still remember debating what I should study months before today and time has gone by incredibly quickly. Nonetheless, there is still lots of time for me to develop and practice my routine. On Tuesday, I was fortunate enough to meet with Billy a third time. We discussed my final routine, or the one that I’d.. Read More


January, 1805 Journal Entry #1 I am writing to express my frustrations with my life. I am a Native American, and a “member” of the Shawnee tribe. I write quotes around the word ‘member’ as it certainly doesn’t feel like I am a part of the tribe. My life was unfortunate since as long as I can remember. My father was killed in a battle at Point Pleasant before I.. Read More

Perfect Practice Makes Perfect! (In-Depth Post #4-5)

Hi there! This post incorporates the requirements from In-Depth posts 4 and 5 as I got an extension on post #4. Unfortunately, my mentor cancelled the meeting that was supposed to happen yesterday (March 5th) as he had to go to a funeral. However, we have been contacting each other a lot the few days and I believe I am still able to write this post about our first two meetings and.. Read More
