Rationale

These lesson plans and theme units have been created to demonstrate and exemplify how First Nations content can be used to implement the Social Studies Curriculum. Teachers will acquire knowledge and skills to recognize the opportunities available within the curriculum in order to naturally weave First Nations content into classroom lessons. These practical instructional tools model the integration of First Nations content, teaching for understanding, diverse teaching strategies, wide ranges of assessment strategies, critical thinking skills and best practices.

The developers of this resource look forward to the day when ALL educators will integrate Aboriginal content into ALL classrooms for ALL students.
