Grade 7 Resources

Grade 7 students are beginning to investigate and understand the various types of power and governance within their own country at the local, regional, provincial, national and global levels. As the understanding of the levels of power that govern Canada develop, students compare and contrast those structures and processes with countries operating within Pacific Rim and circumpolar regions that do not operate as democracies. This area of citizenship focuses on the student using critical thinking skills to better understand the relationship between geography, resources, culture and historical events.

ECC Wrap

Grades K – 4, 5 – 12

The Essential Citizenship Competencies (ECCs) provide a framework to explore questions of citizenship. The ECC Wrap is a thinking strategy that presents questions to support reading, thinking, and learning about a text, an experience, or an issue using a structured process. Students are invited to place the situation or issue in the centre and wrap it in ECC questions. As they collaborate to answer these questions, teachers have seen student understanding slowly and steadily broaden and deepen. These questions can be included in your planning, learning, and assessment to deepen students’ justice orientation. Use the suggested grade level option that works best for your students.
