Food for thought going into the new week...


Found this video on Twitter.  

Bio: Steve Evans teaches in a unique Aboriginal focused program of choice located in Lil'wat Territory (Mt. Currie, B.C.). The program offers an inclusive learning environment that integrates academic learning with experiential and cultural education. Social- emotional support is a key component of the program as they strive to build connections within and between themselves.

Key ideas for me:
  • Social-emotional environment important to shape a safe learning environment.
  • Integrating cultural education with mainstream education should be a priority for our supposed priority learners.
  • All experiences can be literacy experiences.
  • Be aware of the system you are in, the students you serve and the ways you can serve them better.
  • Be aware of your own ego, schema, cultural norms, priorities - they may differ from the students in front of you.

  1. The Papa Taiao Earthcare Programme seems similar in some ways.
