How to complete this assignment
Using the neighbourhood boundaries defined by the Human Early Learning Partnership interactive maps
choose a community in British Columbia to investigate. This may be the community (neighbourhood) that you work within, live within or are interested to learn more about. If you are taking this course from a place in the world outside of British Columbia, please contact me (the instructor) to discuss possible ways forward in your specific geographical locale. Interactive maps on the UBC HELP site can be accessed as follows:
On the UBC HELP website (noted above) click on ‘reports’ on the top bar. From there, on the drop down menu, click on ‘EDI Interactive map’ . A colour map of the province will appear. On the left sidebar – choose ‘neighbourhoods’. Then, go back to the map & click on an area of that map that interests you- zoom in several times so very specific neighbourhoods show. It becomes increasingly defined as you zoom in (for example, it will move from Vancouver to North Vancouver and define Deep Cove or Lonsdale or Edgemont etc. It will be the same for any area you choose).
Using information from Statistics Canada (provided on link below as ‘Neighbourhood Statistics Canada’) from the UBC HELP site, research, identify, summarize and present the relevant statistical data (minimum of 8 statistical points) with your interpretations ,that provides a comprehensive picture of families living within your chosen neighbourhood/community. Think broadly and carefully about which data points you consider as relevant to understanding who lives in the community. Ensure statistical neighbourhood data that informs your analysis is from the census data provided. Including information from the HELP vulnerability data, HELP neighbourhood profiles and/or other publications from institutions or coalitions that captures the population of the neighbourhood can be helpful., however your presentation and analysis should primarily be grounded in the Statistics Canada census data provided.
With consideration and reference to the above,
Write a thoughtful, short reflection addressing what you view as the possible potential strengths (minimum of 4) the population in this community may have to offer young children’s learning experiences
Research, choose and provide information on 2 children’s picture books (appropriate to age 6) that would honour the families living in your identified neighbourhood above. Include the book titles, authors, illustrators and briefly state in your own words how you think the books support and reflect the community make-up (population) of your chosen neighbourhood.
Research, choose, and share 2 practical, quality and creative artifact/input ideas (for eg. an open-ended play material, decor, design material, sensory input…) that an early learning site in this neighbourhood might include or add to their environment and explain how these artifacts/inputs would offer a respectful acknowledgement and welcome to the families in your identified neighbourhood on an
every-day basis. Think broadly and creatively !
Access the HELP Census data:
go to the UBC Human Early Learning Project (link above). click on ‘reports’ in the header bar – then click on ‘data library’ in the dropdown list – the scroll down a bit until you see ‘HELP Neighbourhoods with 2016 census data’ – click on that and all their informing census information will appear.
