Implementing Indigenous Education in Social Studies and History – Part 2

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 2 of this two-part series, teachers will:

  • Enhance their own learning about the complete histories of Canada, and know where to find reliable resources to support their own and student learning
  • Use the inquiry process to guide their own and student learning on indigenous histories and contemporary realities
