The Value of Sports: Unifying a Community - Lesson Plan & Film

The Value of Sports: Unifying a Community - Lesson Plan & Film

Students watch a film, "I am Yup’ik" by Daniele Anastasion and Nathan Golon, about a 16-year-old basketball player from the tiny village of Toksook Bay in Alaska. The film explores the power of basketball, which unites the community and creates hope and pride throughout the young team, family members, and the community-at-large. In this lesson, students explore the themes of identity, resilience, and youth awareness and empowerment. In a class discussion, students make a list of the main character’s struggles and challenges and discuss the qualities and characteristics of the Yup’ik culture. Reflective writing prompts are also included for students to demonstrate their understanding of the story. English and Spanish versions of the lesson plan are available for download.

Eddie Gilbert-A Great Australian Indigenous Fast Bowler

This 6 page PowerPoint presentation introduces the relatively unknown and unacknowledged Indigenous Australian fast bowler, Eddie Gilbert. Use this presentation as a model for students to research and create their own presentation about an Indigenous Australian who is worthy of more recognition. This is an appropriate Reconciliation Week activity or an activity to address Aboriginal perspectives in the English curriculum.
