Lesson Topic: "Bidding for Canada's Funding of Developing Countries" 

 

Students will investigate Canada in the 20th Century. 

Links to investigate:

The following sub-topics will need to be researched, analyzed, and interpreted by Students: 

  • Canada's role in the World

Students must do the following:

  • Take a look at the link which lists all developing countries
  • Pick one developing country for which they will research, analyze, and determine why this country should receive maximum funding from Canada's Foreign Aide
  • Students will need to research Canada's Foreign Aide Policy and follow the links below to build a case for their developing country. 
  • Students will need to present all their research in a Powerpoint and be able to articulate why their developing country deserves maximum funding from Canada 
  • Students must list any resources that their developing country may have to offer Canada in exchange for Foreign Aide. 

 

 

The first set of questions students must be able to answer are: What is a "Developing Country?"

What does this mean? What countries are classified as a "developing nation?"

Does this information support the need for funding for your developing country?

historywire.ca/en/article/19295

 

Students must analyze and review the relationship between Canada and its efforts in the UN with developing countries. How does Canada currently support developing countries?

 

A look at the Canadian Advisory Committee to the United Nations:

 

Canadian+Advisory+Committee-4.ppt

 

 

In gathering all this information, students must present in a Powerpoint their bid for Canada's funding for their developing country. 

 

Some questions to consider when putting together the Powerpoint:

 

1. Why does your developing country deserve maximum funding from Canadian Foreign Aide?

2. What resources can your developing country contribute to Canada in exchange? Anything?

3. Does your developing country meet the Criteria for funding from the Standards Council of Canada?

4. What events are currently taking place in your developing country?

5. What will the Canadian funding be used for in your developing country?

6, Does your developing country currently receive any support/funding from the UN and Canada?

If so, describe what the support/funding is and explain why your developing country deserves more funding?

Hi Devon, I discovered the way to set the background colour for the page is under Settings in the upper right hand corner and then under colour on the left.

Hi Mallory,

I can't seem to find the Settings option. It is not being listed for me. I am using my IMac at home--is this maybe why it is not showing up? I can't find it.
