Founded upon the First Peoples Principles of Learning, English First Peoples courses for Grades 10-12 offer all BC students backgrounds the opportunity to explore First Peoples’ worldviews through dynamic written, visual, oral, and digital First Peoples literature. The English First Peoples 10-12 Teacher Resource Guides were revised and expanded in 2018 to reflect the changed BC curriculum and incorporate recently-published First Peoples literature.

At this workshop, teachers will receive a copy of the 400-page resource guide, collaboratively explore its units/lessons, discuss implementation of its lessons/activities, network with other educators, and see our display of First Peoples literature resources.
