Lesson Plans for Grades 9 -12

Aligned with Ontario Curriculum

Understanding Human Rights

in Afghanistan

Canadian Students as Global Citizen

Canada was among the nation members of the Bonn Agreement, signed December 5, 2001, who committed their countries to strengthening stability and security in Afghanistan. Canada has played a prominent role, committing humanitarian aid and military support, at a significant cost.
Canada’s role in Afghanistan provides an impetus to align curriculum to inform and educate young people about the beleaguered nation.
This resource offers a list of courses, and curriculum expectations, drawn from the Ontario secondary school curriculum guidelines, which lend themselves readily to the inclusion of Afghanistan content. A series of activities/lessons and resources are provided However, these activities constitute a sample of possible lessons as the potential to incorporate Afghanistan material goes far beyond the parameters of this resource. The activities can generate diagnostic, formative, and/or summative assessments, according to the teacher’s discretion.
Teachers are invited to correlate Ontario curriculum expectations with the activities included in the resource. In addition, teachers are encouraged to develop curriculum units, incorporating content related to Afghanistan, based on the design down process.
Finally, the almost infinite range of curriculum expectations which can apply to Afghanistan provides an exciting opportunity for teachers to develop Interdisciplinary courses, as outlined in the Ontario Curriculum, Grades 11 and 12, Interdisciplinary Studies Guideline, 2002. The provision of the curriculum expectations culled out of the Ontario Curriculum Guidelines, in Appendix E, can provide a ready starting point for this process.
This resource provides a foundation for educational applications and investigations; however, the exponential growth of material related to Afghanistan, and the evolving political, military, and cultural developments will increase the potential to embed content in the Ontario curriculum.
