EDUCATION FOR RECONCILIATION

Grade 9 teachers received training last year on the new supplement for the Grade 9 ‘Canadian identities’ social studies program. This professional learning will be expanded upon in the new year by bringing together teachers to reflect on their implementation and work in collaboration to continue to deliver this curriculum. One high school held a ‘Day of Reconciliation’ where students presented a project entitled ‘My Act of Reconciliation’. The projects ranged from making bannock to multi media presentations to interviewing local community members from Elsipogtog and Fort Folly. This problem based experiential approach led to deep learning for many students.

TREATY EDUCATION UPCOMING PL

Grade 3 and 4 teachers will be coming together in February to further their professional learning and work collaboratively on the grade 3 treaty education resource that was rolled out last spring.

UNITED NATIONS YOUTH SUMMIT

A local high school will be hosting an Indigenous Youth United Nations Summit in the coming Spring. Youth delegates will be invited from communities around the province to work together on Indigenous Issues facing our youth today. Information packages were mailed to schools and Chiefs in each community.

ELDER VISITS

Several schools are inviting Elders and Culture Keepers into their classrooms to enrich the First Nation Education curriculum for their students. Thus far, we have had 6 schools host our community members in this way.

FIRST NATIONS BOOK CLUB

One of our high schools has chosen a list of 10 different books that have Indigenous content as an upcoming teaching and learning opportunity for their students. This project is in full swing and going very well! Here is the list:


1.      The Marrow Thieves

2.      Son of a Trickster

3.      Keeper 'n Me

4.      The Break

5.      My Name is Not Easy

6.      Medicine Walk

8.      The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

9.      Touching Spirit Bear

10.  Indian Horse


ONE PAGERS FOR TEACHERS

A sub-committee is working with local Elders on creating ‘one pagers’ for Educators on various local topics. Some of these include:

-What is the history and cultural significance of ‘Circles’?

-Why do we do a territorial acknowledgement?

-Mi’kmaq traditions

-What are the Seven Sacred Teachings?

ELA MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHERS and STAFF PL

WH2.jpg


School staffs and small groups of teachers are participating in circles and professional learning opportunities with the Subject Coordinator to share initiatives with one another on Indigenous Education. We discuss the ‘what’, ‘why’ and ‘how’.

FLAGS

Schools are beginning to commit to hosting a ceremony to accept the Mi’kmaq flag for display.

RED (Respect, Equity and Diversity)

An assembly was held at one of our high schools to show the video from the NCRT website was played for the teachers and student body  along with the promotion of the Katimavik petition to have a flag flown at city hall. The Respect, Equity and Diversity group will be meeting with the First Nation Education Subject Coordinator in the New Year to discuss next steps for their school.

 

 

UNDRIP

A representative attended the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples conference in Vancouver.

ONLINE COURSES

Many teachers have completed online courses in Indigenous Studies – particularly as it applies to Reconciliation through Education. If you are interested in these free courses, please contact our Subject Coordinator.

GRADE 6 SOCIAL STUDIES

Grade 6 students at a middle school are studying the elements of culture. On student’s projects, images representing First Nation’s elements of culture were used. For example, symbols like feathers and certain animals were taught to students and then in turn they used them as a symbol for North American culture. In addition, students are participating in talking circles to further demonstrate that the First Nations’ history is not a written history but an oral history passed down from generation to generation.
