Implementing Indigenous Education in Social Studies and History – Part 1

As a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action, the Ministry of Education has introduced phase one of mandatory Indigenous curriculum enhancements in grades 4-6, and history in grades 7, 8 and 10. This workshop is designed to support educators on how to effectively embed First Nations, Métis and Inuit histories and traditions into their social studies and history classes. Participants will be provided with inquiry starting points and suggested resources to support the implementation of these curriculum enhancements.

In Part 1 of this two-part series, teachers will:

  • Build an understanding of Indigenous worldviews and protocols, including the importance of local relationships and what it means to do this work in a good way
  • Develop an understanding of the changes to the social studies and history curricula
