Ninth-grade students in Manitoba will gain a greater understanding of the society in which they live, their roles within that society, and the role of Canada within the world by completing these supplementary units of study. Topics and subtopics are: (1) Canada's Physical Environment--an overview of Canada, forces challenging Canada's survival as a nation; (2) Canadian Identity--who is a Canadian, the multicultural nature of the Canadian society; (3) Canadian Society--political, legal, and economic processes, technology; (4) Canada and the World--Canadian interdependence, relationship to the third world; and (5) Canada in the Future. Provided for each unit subtopic are objectives, teaching strategies, learning activities, and discussion questions. Students give class reports, plan and develop a "Canadian Identity" project, read and discuss excerpts from books, research the Canadian legal system, write letters and essays, and take field trips. An annotated listing of teacher and student print and nonprint resources for each unit is included. (RM)
