Module 1 -1 – Teaching the Teachers

 

One resource that I have come back to numerous times is the First Nations Steering Committee website http://www.fnesc.ca 

From their site: “FNESC works at the provincial level to provide services in the areas of research, communications, information dissemination, advocacy, program administration and networking”. Their mandate is:  “to facilitate discussion about education matters affecting First Nations in BC by disseminating information and soliciting input from First Nations.  The primary goal is to promote and support the provision of quality education to First Nations learners in BC.”

As a non-indigenous person educating in the British Columbia school system, I would like to get the correct information to share with our students. FNESC provides resources, research, and professional development opportunities.

Particularly helpful as a middle school classroom teacher are the Learning First Peoples Classroom Resources. http://www.fnesc.ca/learningfirstpeoples/  which provide  support B.C. Mathematics, English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science curriculum. The First Peoples Principles of Learning (below) are also located in every classroom in our school where educators use them to guide their teaching.
