Topic: This presentation addresses how educators can more effectively use the First Nations, Metis and Inuit Policy Framework in their classrooms.
Summary: This presentation will review my doctoral research in which I examine the effectiveness of the First Nations, Metis and Inuit Policy Framework. A number of the topics that I will be speaking about will include: the introduction to the study, the literature review, how this research differs from previous research, the conclusions, recommendations and practical application ideas for educators to more effectively integrate the policy framework into their classroom. I will use group work in two ways. First, audience members will be asked to share primary or secondary stories that relate back to the presentation topic in order to help the audience better understand the negative realities that Aboriginal People currently face. Second, the audience will be challenged to think of additional ways that my finding and recommendations can be implemented into schools. Last, the audience will share with one another their ideas. Educators will know that they are not alone in finding ways to enact the policy framework in their classrooms. Similar policy frameworks exist throughout Canada, and this presentation can benefit every educator.
