Integrating Aboriginal Teaching and Values into the Classroom
What Works? Research into Practice: A research-into-practice series produced by a partnership between The Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat and the Ontario Association of Deans of Education
This resource calls upon research in aboriginal education to explain the importance of self esteem for the success of aboriginal learners. The publication highlights an Aboriginal Model of Self Esteem which describes the self as made up of the intellectual, spiritual, emotional-mental, and physical. The resource provides a guide to practical implementation of holistic ideas by referring to the Ojibwe Good Life Teachings and discussing the implications of teaching respect, bravery, wisdom, humility, honesty and truth.
