Apples

Apples have been grown in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley since the first settlers arrived in the 1600s. And since the mid-1800s the Valley has produced some of the finest apples in the world. But the industry has suffered ups and downs brought on by global conflict and the fickleness of both weather and the consuming public. Now the province's beleaguered apple industry is poised for a renaissance - and growers think they've got the right balance to maintain a long-term, profitable industry.

Aruba

Aruba takes an unflinching approach to the myths and realities of urban marginalization. Through the eyes of 11-year-old Milan, we witness the cycle of abuse, poverty, and isolation that engulfs both his own life and his mom’s. Milan is, however, a silent witness and leaves it to us, as viewers, to flesh out the emotional and interpretive script of what we see. It’s as we come up against our own perceptions, especially media-fuelled images of violence and inner-city youth, that the film does its best work in terms of critical thinking.. This discussion starter for grades 7-12 will help students understand the struggle of inner-city children and the effects of poverty, drug abuse and domestic voilence.

Automobiles and Trucks
