The BC Early Learning Framework calls for the inclusion of Canadian Indigenous Knowledge and Ways of Learning in all BC classrooms as part of the Truth and Reconciliation process. What are the Indigenous Ways of Learning and how can teachers introduce them into the classroom? How do you introduce and talk about the history and current experiences of Indigenous People with preschoolers in ways that are meaningful and respectful? Learn about how to find culturally appropriate resources to use in your classroom and what it means to decolonize your classroom. Together we will explore Reconciliation and our responsibilities as ECE in a space of safety and respect. We will learn about Reconciliation and what our responsibilities as ECE are as outlined by the BC ELF. Delivered from an immigrant/settler point of view, this workshop is presented in a conversational style where information and sharing form the structure of the learning.
