Lesson 4: Reading and Understanding “‘There was nowhere to run to’: Social Support, Cultural Continuity, and Health”
By: Doriane Ossene
Doriane’s background includes education in France and learning a lot about Canada through her studies at York University in International Studies and Canadian studies, which she will be graduating from in 2023. She is passionate about stories people don’t know about and loves making them known. Her dream is to work in a field that supports underrepresented communities, in Canada and around the world.
This lesson supports reading and understanding the article “‘There was nowhere to run to’: Social Support, Cultural Continuity, and Health,” the fourth article in Émilie Lebel’s series. The activities included can be used in the context of history, social studies, physical education, and/or interdisciplinary studies courses at the high school level.
This lesson’s learning goals are for students to:
- understand the specific assistance needs of Inuit communities,
- understand the link between health and social support and social capital,
- discover the healing and support services offered to Sixties Scoop survivors, and
- draw inferences from cartographic data.
