Free the Children: Children Helping Children

Free the Children: Children Helping Children Through Education recently offered a week long, local series this past February focusing on the state of Aboriginal education, “from the schools on First Nations reserves struggling for support, to the students who face incredible odds in pursuit of a fair and quality education”. The site includes a series of videos designed to raise awareness of significant issues related to Aboriginal education, and offers lesson plans to raise awareness (around the world) to the state of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit (FNMI) education in Canada. The site provides lesson plans for elementary and secondary teachers to use with their students. Focus areas include: “traditions, culture, development, Aboriginals, community, awareness, geography, climate, survival, legislation, social justice and rights.”

About smyers

Hi Everyone, I am a high school alternate school teacher living in Vancouver, BC. I have been teaching for 15 years, though I am not sure where all that time has gone. I love working with teenagers, and am grateful that I have the opportunity to share my love of learning with young people every day. It's a pretty sweet gig!
