Understanding First Nations and Metis Perspectives ( Formerly Culturally Responsive Pedagogy)

Professional Growth Opportunities

Using the four dimensions — spiritual, physical, emotional and intellectual — as a framework, participants will develop deeper understanding of the historical factors that contributed to the need for reconciliation and the ways in which First Nations and Métis peoples are empowering themselves. Through engagement in culturally responsive processes, participants will co-construct this deeper understanding and consider ways in which they might become agents of positive change within their educational contexts.

Participants will:

  • Construct deeper understanding of traditional First Nations, Métis, and European worldviews.
  • Investigate the factors that contributed to the marginalization, loss of homeland, and wardship of First Nations and Métis peoples and their generational effects.
  • Identify ways in which First Nations and Métis peoples are empowering themselves.
  • Consider and commit to ways in which they can contribute to reconciliation.
