Add YOUR Voice to the Conversation

During the live webcast, students representing provinces across the country will be sharing their thoughts on what belonging means to young people from their community compared to the rest of Canada. Your class can play an active role by sharing their perspectives on belonging from their own community by answering the following Next 150 discussion question on WorldVuze below, before October 17th.

Canadian Identities Question #4:

“How much change do you think is needed for the people in the city, town, or community where you live to feel they belong in Canada?”

Here’s how your students can find and answer this question, once they’re on WorldVuze:

1. Clicking on the arrow to expand and see all “Next 150 questions”

2. Clicking on the Canadian Identities tab. Students can then click on the image of “Question 4: How much change do you think is needed for the people in the city, town, or community where you live to feel they belong in Canada?”

3. Share their Perspectives and submit their answers! Once your students click on the question, it will take them directly to a pop-up where they can type and share their perspective on that question.


Follow Along with the Canadian Identities Webcast Activity (Optional)

Do you want your class to follow along and interact with the Canadian Identities activity showcased in the Kids Meet webcast? In this Canadian Identities Activity, which your class can do prior to the webcast, your students will add their own perspectives and analyze perspectives on “belonging in Canada” first from their community’s perspective, then compare their community to other perspectives across Canada.
