Supporting Aboriginal Student Success: Self-Esteem and Identity

Dr. Pamela Rose Toulouse of Laurentian Universiy, has authored Supporting Aboriginal Student Success: Self-Esteem and Identity, A Living Teachings Approach. This paper explores the seven good life teachings of the Ojibwe people. Respect, Love, Bravery, Wisdom, Humility, Honesty, and Truth. Through the use of these teachings and the related principles behind them, Dr. Toulouse explores the implications for education, and implications for classroom practice, as well as some suggested applications.

This document lends itself well to my research topic of developing a best practices approach to fostering success for Aboriginal students in my class.

I found the same article and used it for my paper and blog too. I would be interested in reading your best practices handbook as it sounds very similar to my research on how teachers can support Indigenous students in the classroom.
