Explore various Indigenous resources and learn how to include First Nation, Métis, and Inuit perspectives in our education system. During this session, Joe will offer examples of how to effectively integrate Indigenous content in the education of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous learners. Through the exploration of a variety of texts, genres, and forms of storytelling, Joe will highlight how wonderful (and achievable) it is to select Indigenous authors and stories to enrich a learner’s life, both young and old. By highlighting various examples of literature including picture books, junior novels, and graphic novels, as well as media texts, Joe will share how to approach cross-curricular learning that enables and empowers educators to effectively integrate Indigenous content into the classroom. In an era of Truth and Reconciliation, it is imperative that the worldview of diverse First Nations become a part of every child’s educational experience. Joe will share the joy that comes with knowing and sharing Indigenous perspectives.
