Incorporating aboriginal perspectives, knowledge and content
Course Presented By: Zack Haddock
To explore strategies that encourage teachers to integrate aboriginal perspectives, knowledge and culture into their daily routine.
The aboriginal people have been the custodians of this land for over 50,000 years and have a strong ongoing presence in the community. Teachers have a responsibility to integrate aboriginal perspectives, knowledge and culture into their daily teaching. However, many teachers have little background in how to do this sensitively and in accordance with local aboriginal protocols. This session is a starting point for teachers to start their own knowledge journey and improve their practice.
