Achieving Aboriginal student success : a guide for K to 8 classrooms

by Pamela Rose Toulouse.

Achieving Aboriginal Student Success presents goals and strategies needed to support Aboriginal learners in the classroom. This book is for all teachers of kindergarten to grade 8 who have Aboriginal students in their classrooms or who are looking for ways to infuse an Aboriginal worldview into their curriculum. Although the author’s primary focus is the needs of Aboriginal students, the ideas are best practices that can be applied in classroom-management techniques, assessment tools, suggestions for connecting to the Aboriginal community, and much more! The strategies and information in this resource are about building bridges between cultures that foster respect, appreciation, and understanding.

Records for the 2012 SpringerLINK ebooks were added (our mistake) to the Catalogue and Summon before we had the access organized. In fact, due to higher-than-expected costs, it is probable that many 2012 SpringerLINK ebooks will not be purchased by the Library.

So, if you come across an ebook that is published by “Springer” and has a date of “2012” and you cannot get access to it, please still report it via out Help Form, but be aware that access may not be possible.

Sorry for any inconvenience and confusion this may cause.
