Aboriginal Worldviews and Perspectives in the Classroom: Moving Forward

Cited from BC Ministry of Education Aboriginal Education website:

Inspired by Scott Benwell and Kaleb Child from School District 85 (Vancouver Island North), this project is a call to action for educators and leadership to create and enhance learning environments to serve each learner, family and community. Aboriginal voice is dominant in this resource guide and reflects the opinions of community members.

This resource guide aligns with the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the newly revised curriculum emphasizing relevant, authentic inclusion of content regarding Aboriginal culture, language and history. The resource guide supports educators and provides context as they incorporate the First Peoples Principles of Learning into their learning environments.

The resource guide also aligns with the work currently happening around the province through Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreements and networks of educators such as the Aboriginal Enhancement Schools Network.
