Knowledge to Action: Infusing Indigenous Perspectives

Relationships, Stories, and Connection will be the basis for learning and developing practical tools, knowledge, and resources for student learning. Participants will explore the power of relationships in working towards teaching for identity building to establish a culture of learning where every student feels they belong. 

 

Our role as educators to answer the Calls to Action by learning, doing, acting, and sharing is imperative not only for the benefit of Indigenous students, but for all students, and future generations to come. Together, we will unpack the history and resulting effects of colonization we see in Canadian society and in the classroom. This network will equip educators with the knowledge, tools, and strategies to embed Indigenous perspectives in the classroom and explore Indigenous pedagogy and ways of knowing. The sessions will focus on identifying, selecting, and developing appropriate resources, content, and curriculum connections for the grades 5-12 setting. Educators will co-construct action plans in a supportive environment, implement in the classroom, and contribute to a collection of materials developed throughout the network.
