At the #FNMIAQ tonight, I asked folks what they would like future admin #LUpqp1 to consider in their roles to support #Indigenous ed. So many fantastic ideas. Iris was duly impressed. I will collate in this thread
1. Education. Take time to educate yourself, and support staff learning. Attend workshops. Dedicate time @ staff meetings, PD to learning #Indigenous #truths & how to incorporate in classes #LUpqp1
2. Take this learning about #Indigenous ed seriously. Don't treat it like it is just another "thing" we have to do. This can happen if incorporated into SIPSA, Annual Learning Plans, Book Clubs #LUpqp1 #FNMIAQ
3. Meet with local #Indigenous knowledge keepers & Elders. Invite them into the school, for staff, for students, for the school community. Ask them what they would like the school to be doing to support the TRC, how they might be involved #LUpqp1 #FNMIAQ
4. Provide awareness, through special days like Orange Shirt Day, National Indigenous Peoples Month, etc. Keep the representation of #Indigenous Peoples going all year long. Ensure all groups, First Nation, Metis, Inuit acknowledged #LUpqp1 #FNMIAQ
5. Provide resources to support teaching #Indigenous ed, such as Pamela Toulouse's Truth & Reconciliation in Canadian Schools, highlight resources available in schools & centrally, regularly display them #LUpqp1 #FNMIAQ
6. Know where #Indigenous ed fits into curriculum, and support it. Provide resources and release time to do this work in a good way. Help Ts see how can be integrated across curriculum as regular component #LUpqp1 #FNMIAQ
7. Go beyond token experiences. Drum circles are important, and what else can you do? Same with land acknowledgements. They need to mean more than a script or a plaque. Develop a school culture that learns about the past in relation to current #Indigenous issues #LUpqp1 #FNMIA
8. Support new teachers, especially LTOs who are often overwhelmed and would love help being introduced to school resources, & included in trips, #Indigenous guests, etc. #LUpqp1 #FNMIAQ
9. Understand how to structure curriculum & pedagogies for critical anti-racist, anti-colonial & culturally responsive education. This may require new learning for you that will benefit everyone #LUpqp1 #FNMIAQ
10. Use #Indigenous scholars' work to guide your work in the school. Again, this may mean learning more yourself first #LUpqp1 #FNMIAQ
My #FNMIAQ class rocks #LUpqp1
