EDUC 609 - Aboriginal/Indigenous Learners: History, Culture, and Ways of Knowing
This course explores the difficult history Aboriginal/Indigenous people have with Western education. It also explores Indigenous ways of knowing, contemporary educational theory, and instructional practices in relation to the needs and resources of Aboriginal/Indigenous students in rural and urban northern communities. Students are encouraged to examine achievement data and to explore cultural assumptions around definitions of Aboriginal/Indigenous student success. Students consider the cultural relevance of teaching resources, assessment tools, and school improvement interventions. Issues of Aboriginal/Indigenous access, retention, and participation in education systems are emphasized, along with the need for rebuilding trust among educational institutions and Aboriginal/Indigenous communities.
