A class was exploring Environmental Sustainability as it pertains to current resource management topics and problems facing Canada. Students were given time to research topics and create documentaries that explored the pros and cons of their respective topics (see project description).
Student Work Videos
This project facilitated the development of research skills, collaboration and communication skills. Students had to look at both sides of the issue and consider the different stakeholders that might be impacted by their decisions. They were very engaged in the research component as well as the mock interviews that they incorporated into their videos. Students enjoyed the documentary film festival when all the groups were ready to show their finished work.
