Canada VS. Sudan

12 Mar

Our grade 5/6 Social Studies class has been all about the Canadian government since January. Students were asked to research any country in either Eastern Europe,South America, Africa or the Middle East and to answer our focus question: How are other countries different from Canada?

Students were asked to compare the systems of government and the differences in society. I’ve asked the students to think of a unique way to present their information. This has proven to not always be an easy decision to make.  Graeme was able to really deepen his understanding of South Sudan after finding out that his research was interesting and meaningful. I’ve told Graeme that the ultimate goal of your learning experience,in life and in school, is to find meaning behind everything that you do. I think Graeme met that goal. Graeme created a blog and a podcast to present his answer to the focus question. Please feel free to look through his work and leave a comment on what you think.

Thanks Graeme!

    You did an amazing job on this project Greame. It’s incredible how much information is put into this blog, and how much you would of worked on it. It’s very understandable on why you chose Sudan for your project, because how diverse their government is, and the minute similarities to Canada, So it was very thought provoking on why you chose Sudan.
    Also it was fascinating on how you came up with the idea on doing the podcasts. So overall you’re project was amazing, Good job.

    And sorry if I spelled you’re name wrong

    Wow! I can’t believe it, This is one of the best blogs that I have seen. The spelling and grammar are great. I thought that the detail and editing was great and that your blog definitely deserves to get an A.This was a joy to read and the only down side was that the podcast was a little long. I learned a lot about Sudan and realized how terrible it must be to grow up there and risk being so poor or even being forced to become a child soldier.
