Module 4.4 Aboriginal Perspectives and the Curriculum – Discussion Papers

Dwayne Trevor Donald has written these discussion papers to engage teachers, pre-service teachers, administrators and members of the community in conversations about aboriginal perspectives and the Alberta social studies curriculum.  Some of the questions he discusses are:

  • Why are Aboriginal perspectives in the curriculum?
  • Why is it necessary for all teachers and students in Alberta to be required to work with Aboriginal perspectives?
  • What are the hopes, wishes, goals of Aboriginal people and their communities?
  • What notions of curriculum are most helpful in understanding the large curriculum shift occurring in Alberta?

Further to this resource are guiding questions intended for users to help guide the conversation.
