The Aboriginal Perspectives: A Guide to the Teacher’s Toolkit is an online resource from the Ministry of Education, developed by educators in Ontario, which has been designed to help elementary and secondary teachers bring Aboriginal perspectives into their classroom.
The article is divided in sections that touches on six main themes:
– Aboriginal Peoples and Organizations
– Culture, Tradition, and Language
– Cross-Cultural Perspectives
– Aboriginal Contribution
– Current and Historical Issues
Within each of these themes, background information is given various topics along with teaching strategies on how to incorporate the content in learning activities. Although the background information in each section doesn’t go in depth, it does provide a good starting point for anyone looking to bring First Nation, Metis, and Inuit history, culture, perspective, and knowledge into their classroom.
