With the increased inclusion of First Peoples’ content in the changing BC curriculum, there is a need to incorporate unappropriated First Peoples’ perspectives across the curriculum. The First Nations Education Steering Committee and the First Nations Schools Association, in collaboration with teachers and partners, have developed the following Learning First Peoples series of teacher resources to support English Language Arts, Science Social Studies and Mathematics courses.
The resources reflect the First Peoples Principles of Learning as well as the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, including the call to “integrate Indigenous Knowledge and teaching methods into classrooms” and “build student capacity for intercultural understanding, empathy and mutual respect.”
The Math First Peoples Resource Guide is designed to help teachers of Mathematics 8 and 9 in BC extend their existing practice to incorporate new approaches.
Explore First Peoples’ worldviews through literature, founded on the First Peoples Principles of Learning. English First Peoples is recognized by BC universities and college for English entrance requirements.
