Indigenous role models can be role models in the fields such as health care, educa- tion, business, art, activism and more. Enabling students to hear and learn from an Indigenous role model can inspire them to pursue learning opportunities and careers that they may not have considered before. Learning about Indigenous role models also contributes to the spirit of reconciliation by teaching both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students the positive impacts that Indigenous people have on our communities. Students will research a role model that is highlighted in a Fireside Chats video. Students will then create a 3–5 minute multi-me- dia presentation teaching the class about their role model. MATERIALS •"Indigenous Role Model Examples" Reproducible •"Indigenous Role Model Presentation Template" •"Presentation Checklist" •Sticky notes and writing instruments (pencils, pens, etc.) •Computer and internet access ACTIVATE: WHAT MAKES SOMEONE A ROLE MODEL? To begin this lesson, pose the question: "What makes someone a role model?" Have students turn to a partner and take turns answering the question. As students are discussing, provide each pair with a sticky note to write their ideas on. When they are ready to share, students will place their sticky note on the board. The teacher will then read out all the answers to the class. Next, pose the question: "Who are some of your role models"? Again, have students turn to their partners and share their answers. Provide a second sticky note. Pairs will write their answers and place their sticky note on the board. The teacher will read out all the answers. Once teachers have read out the answers, discuss the concept of "representation" with the class. Representation in this context refers to the inclusion, active participation, and portrayal Lesson Plan
