About the Session:

Who can attend: KTCEA Teachers, Elders, Curriculum Specialists only

KTCEA High School teachers and Curriculum Instruction Specialists will meet virtually to engage in groundbreaking work to examine Alberta Education’s high school curriculum (grades 10 - 12) from an Indigenous perspective.  The group will work collaboratively to organize the curriculum’s key ideas/topics by season, for English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and CTS.   The working group will align the identified subjects with land-based learning, Cree Ways of Knowing and Being including the Cree Language, connect outcomes to the KTCEA local context and significant local land sites, to create a relevant and consistent curriculum for all KTCEA high school students.  Outcomes will include a list of Indigenous activities and resources including significant local land sites, access to local Elders, and protocols, to help bring each subject alive and relevant for KTCEA students
