Indigenizing The Library Learning Commons

In this session, we will share a broad wealth of strategies for incorporating First Peoples content, perspectives and principles into the school library learning commons. We will examine resources such as graphic novels, culture kits, artefacts/belongings, plays, lit circles, anthologies, picture books, music, realia, non-fiction and more.  We will also explore ways to support teachers as they integrate First Peoples content and perspectives across the curriculum.
