The purpose of the Sharing Circle used as part of classroom instruction is to create a safe environment in which students can share their point of view with others. Students will then watch Carly Chart- ier's interview about her career working at the Selkirk Friendship Centre where she works in Human Resources helping community members find resources/supports and information about post-secondary opportunities. Students will take the information learned in the video and apply the concepts to their own lives by creating a visual of the support systems they have in their own lives. Students will self-assess their final projects based on the rubric posted below.
