Program Description

The Immigrant Perspectives Edukit is a three week rental from the Hsitoric Stewart Farm that you use in your classroom. This kit focuses on teaching with artifacts and archival resources connected to local Surrey history. This kit also focuses on immigration policies supporting European immigration, the governmental systems which discriminated against Chinese immigration throughout this time period, what lifestyles immigrants to Canada lived at the Stewart Farm, and the different conditions Canadian society placed on immigrants to Surrey.

Big Ideas
  • Canada’s policies and treatment of minority peoples have negative and positive legacies.
  • Canadian institutions and government reflect the challenge of our regional diversity.
  • Immigration and multiculturalism continue to shape Canadian society and identity.
  • Complex global problems require international cooperation to make difficult choices for the future.
  • Economic self-interest can be a significant cause of conflict among peoples and governments.
  • Media sources can both positively and negatively affect our understanding of important events and issues.
  • Systems of government vary in their respect for human rights and freedoms.
