Lesson Plan: Translating Research on Climate Change into Ojibwe
In this lesson plan, we take you through how we took a video about the impact of climate change on fresh water in English and transformed it into Ojibwe (below)—all with the goal of empowering Ojibwe-speaking people to better understand the threats to their freshwater supplies and to take action.
This lesson plan includes a full transcript of the video and then breaks down the sentences, explores the grammar, and explains how we created new words. The end of the video also includes suggested learning activities.
