English First Peoples Grades 10-12 courses offer students of all backgrounds the opportunity to explore First Peoples’ worldviews through written, oral, visual and digital texts. The courses were developed through the collaboration of First Nations Education Steering Committee with the BC Ministry of Education. English First Peoples (EFP) 12 is the academic equivalent to English Studies 12 for BC Dogwood Graduation Diploma and for post-secondary entrance requirements.

At this workshop, participants will hear from educators across the province who have been successful in having EFP 10, 11 and/or 12 courses offered in schools in their districts, and will be supported with ideas about how to move through potential barriers in their local contexts to be able to provide these rich courses for all students. This workshop focusses on successfully getting the courses “up and running” (not the resources for the courses).

This is an online event.

Founded upon the First Peoples Principles of Learning, English First Peoples courses for Grades 10-12 offer students of all backgrounds the opportunity to explore First Peoples’ worldviews through written oral, visual and digital texts. English First Peoples (EFP) 12 is the academic equivalent to English Studies 12 for BC Dogwood Graduation Diploma and for post-secondary entrance requirements.

The FNESC/FNSA EFP 10-12 Teacher Resource Guide was revised in 2018 to reflect the latest BC curriculum and incorporate recently-published First Peoples texts. At this workshop, participants will learn about the scope of the guide, discuss its use, and participate in small group break-out sessions.

Participants are encouraged to download the FNESC/FNSA English First Peoples Teacher Resource Guide – or order a hard copy well in advance of the workshop. The guide can be downloaded for free, or ordered at cost from the FNESC Publications Order Form.
