Social - Society and Culture

We will be continuing to look at culture in Social Studies class. In class you received a handout. We will use the handout as part of your notes... so keep them in a SAFE PLACE in your binder!

Ponder and Respond to the following...
1.Canada is often called a mosaic, while the United States is often called a melting pot. What do each of these terms mean to you?

2. In 1995, U.S. President Bill Clinton said, "Canada has stood for all of us as a model of how people of different cultures can live and work together in peace, prosperity and understanding." Why would Clinton have said this?

3. What public celebrations and festivals take place in our community to celebrate culture? Why is it important that these events happen?

Everything you wanted to know about Canadians... Rick Mercier...

Are there any stereotypes in the video? For what reasons do you agree? For what reasons do you disagree?
