Later this week, division four will be meeting with students from divisions one, two, three and five. Each class has become experts in a controversial human rights issue from Canada’s past:
- Komagata Maru incident, 1914
- Rejection of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany
- Asian Exclusion Act and Head Taxes
- Anti-Asian Riot in Vancouver, 1907 (Division 4 task)
- Japanese internment during World War II
During the meetings, our division four experts will share their knowledge of the Anti-Asian Riot with other students. To prepare for this, students will create a short series of slides that will help them present and share with other students.
ASSIGNMENT TASKS: [Mrs. Weiss & Mr. Woelders will assign students to groups of 4-5 students]
- Design Leader:
- Your job is to keep everyone on task and make sure you are finished by the end of the day. If your group is short one person, you may have to re-assign tasks or take one on yourself to make sure everything gets completed.
- The leader will introduce their presentation. Prepare for this.
- Collaborate with your group to create at least one PPT slide for the presentation.
- Do not add animations. Your slides will be saved as jpeg or pdf and printed out as handouts.
- Do not waste time with elaborate backgrounds, fancy fonts or anything else that will not help you communicate ideas and information.
- Do not add a lot of text. Each researcher should write out what he/she will share, but text on each slide should be a minimum. Each presenter should aim to speak on his/her topic for 1-2 minutes.
- Include authentic photographs or primary sources to help communicate your knowledge and ideas.
