Navigating The Core French Journey On Indigenous Ground
Teaching Core French in BC in this era of reconciliation and decolonization can be a difficult route to navigate. Roadblocks such as tokenism and appropriation all too easily fall into our path and derail our efforts. This workshop will endeavor to shed light on my journey of creating a culturally-inclusive French classroom, with Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures equal partners in our learning. Learn not only how to bring meaningful Indigenous content into your teaching, but also how to create a physical classroom which supports a respectful and inclusive philosophy toward culture through art, autobiographical writing, and Indigenous teaching and learning methodologies.
