To further support the implementation of English First Peoples (EFP) 10, 11, and 12 courses in BC classrooms, FNESC is revising and updating the FNESC/FNSA English First Peoples 10-12 Teacher Resource Guide. This process will include:

  • Updating existing units to reflect a diverse range of best practices in teaching and learning;
  • Adding new units that support the use of new authentic Indigenous literature in Canada; and
  • Offering more support to teachers in planning for instruction.

The revision process will begin in July 2024 with a 3-day in-person meeting in Vancouver, and it is anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2024. After the initial 3-day meeting the majority of the work will happen virtually.

FNESC is extending an invitation to educators who are interested in being a part of this process to apply to FNESC. Remuneration will be provided to the revision team members in the form of a contract.
