Step 3 Reconciliation conference

We'll arrange the class into several conferences with at least one member from each perspective. In these reconciliation conferences work through the following:

Ø each perspective share their perspective's 5 most significant historical events and why

Ø as a multi-perspective group decide upon the 5 most significant events are and provide a rationale

The spirit of this multi-perspective discussion is from the following:

"We must recognize our common humanity and the permanent connection with one another and the place we live. Our collective well being rests with the relationships we build today." Reconciliation Canada https://goo.gl/5qCWIB

Step 4 Developing Relationship(s)

Using the summary Google docs from step 2 and 3 what relationship(s) between the perspectives on Canadian Nationalism exist? Below are several prompts to help develop your ideas on relationships.

A relationship may include the following:

Ø value claim à by a perspective i.e. Mr. Brentnell believes Star Wars is the best sci-fi series ever!

Ø Affirming à confirm or ratify. i.e Worldwide box office sales of movie tickets confirm Star Wars has made the most money of any sci-fi series in history.

Ø Negating à making ineffective. i.e. Star Trek has 12 movies and 726 television episodes; while Star Wars only has 12 movies and 246 television episodes. Clearly Star Trek is the superior sci-fi series.

· Are there any agreement/disagreement about the importance of an event or event(s)?
