This important and timely professional learning session will identify how we can respectfully and accurately incorporate Indigenous perspectives into all aspects of our schools and classrooms, including lessons on the history and legacy of residential schools. Our goal is to begin a dialogue to learn together and build relationships among Blackfoot First Nation Knowledge Keepers, community leaders, and non-Indigenous educators and teaching candidates who are striving to “get this right.”
Key questions that will be explored at this event include:
Why should educators change their practices, how do we achieve “truth,” and how do we work towards reconciliation? What’s stalling the development of learning objectives that would incorporate all Canadians in the reconciliation process, and how should the TRC’s recommendations evolve education policy?
How can we develop approaches that are community-specific and respectful of local protocols and practices? How can educators build trusting relationships with Indigenous communities?
How can schools and post-secondary institutions commit to co-learning about reconciliation throughout the entire school year? How can post-secondary teacher trainers prepare the next generation of educators to value and feel confident in embedding Indigenous perspectives into all grade levels and subject areas?
No matter where you are on your learning journey, this event will equip you with valuable insights that can help you contribute to preparing the next generation of learners who will work collaboratively with Indigenous peoples to advance reconciliation.
