K- 12 Infusing Indigenous Texts in Classrooms
This new series was designed to help K-12 teachers delve into how they can infuse Indigenous texts in their classrooms in meaningful and respectful ways. Teachers will appreciate the Q&A format, age-appropriate literacy strategies and children’s Indigenous book recommendations. This set of materials can be used for self-study or can be used in a larger professional learning context.
In an effort to support the infusion of Foundational Knowledge across the curriculum, ARPDC consultants along with Tłı̨chǫ Dene Author, Storyteller, Educator Richard Van Camp collaborated on this project.
1. A series of eight Q&A Videos with Richard Van Camp and two local Indigenous Consultants. (Videos are 1 – 7 minutes in length)
