On the left menu you will find outcome charts containing media-related learning outcomes from the Aboriginal Language and Studies curriculum, with links to supporting resources on the MediaSmarts site. As many of our lessons can be adapted to suit different grade levels, specific lessons may be listed for more than one grade. Teachers should also note that individual lessons often satisfy a number of learning outcomes.
