Module 1- Alberta Teacher’s Association: Education is our Buffalo

http://www.teachers.ab.ca/SiteCollectionDocuments/ATA/Publications/Human-Rights-Issues/Education is Our Buffalo (PD-80-7).pdf

This resource serves as a teacher resource for teaching students, creating lessons, and resources that are inclusive for all students.  Although a resource created for Alberta teachers, there are many aspects of the resource that are relevant for all educators.  For example, a history of Canadian Aboriginal culture is included in which definitions of  cultural terms are included.  In addition, explanations of treaties are included as well as a timeline of historical events dating from 1605-2007.  Also, sections on spirituality, cultural traditions, and modern day viewpoints on schooling are included so that educators have a resource to scaffold today’s students.
