Teaching Treaties in the Classroom - Day 2

The Office of the Treaty Commissioner in partnership with Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation presents the following session.

Teaching Treaties in the Classroom - Day 2

The objective of this workshop is to become familiar with resources and materials used to teach treaties. A First Nations Elder will talk about her/his traditional teachings and cultural worldview. A brief look at the treaty resource materials in the K - Grade 12 Treaty Resource Kit is followed by an activity on the Treaty Essential Learnings (TELs). The teachers will develop a lesson plan for immediate use in their respective classrooms. Teachers share the lessons with the group. A Treaty Teacher Leader will be present to assist teachers as they explore internet sites and the resources. Resources from the Treaty Kit will be used throughout the workshop.

Note: Please bring an electronic device to access web resources.
