CREATIVE AND CRITICAL THINKING

  • Sir Ken Robinson (short 3 min clips): Why Creativity is Important in Education

  • Read this CODE document about appropriation:  In a Good Way: Drama, Dance and Indigenous Studies and discuss it with your teen-ager. This document was created collaboratively with Indigenous artists and elders and with approval from FNMIAEO, the provincial subject association for Indigenous Education. Please visit this site.

  • Visit and explore this Indigenous ARTS site in North Bay. Aanmitaagzi  is an Indigenous multi-disciplinary artist-run company based in Nipissing First Nation. This is a good site to look at together.

  • The CBC has introduced an exciting project that includes students and their caregivers who wish to be involved. Go to the CBC Creative Relief Fund to learn about the project overview before clicking on the green INNOVATION STREAM button for details.
