Presented by: Donna Ross & Jodi Taylor
Located at: Online
About the Session

Target Audience: Grade 7-9 teachers, educational assistants and administrators are encouraged to attend.

Join us as we explore instructional designs to weave supports, resources and Indigenous knowledge systems into the Grade 7-9 curriculum subject areas. Participants will share in ideas, conversations and have opportunity to explore pedagogical practices, and deepen understanding of Indigenous foundational knowledge. Various resources will be shared  to weave understanding into the grade 7, 8 and 9 content area to authentically connect Indigenous knowledge while planning for your classes.  Each session will include 30 minutes of interactive delivery and a 15-minute Q&A period. The sessions will prepare you with practical strategies and knowledge that can be confidently embedded into your teaching and learning practice immediately.

Each 90 minute on line learning supports TQS 1, 2 4, and 5.
