FNMI FOUNDATIONAL KNOWLEDGE
During my Indigenous course at the University of Calgary, I furthered my understanding of the historical, social, economic, and political implications of treaties and agreements with First Nations, legislation and agreements with Métis, residential schools, and their legacy. My lesson plans below demonstrate my ability to use the programs of study to provide opportunities for all students to develop a knowledge and understanding of, and respect for, the histories, cultures, languages, contributions, perspectives, experiences and contemporary contexts of First Nations, Métis and Inuit. Additionally, during my Indigenous course, I did a resource analysis of the children’s book: A Promise is a Promise. This analysis proves my ability to evaluate and use resources that accurately reflect and demonstrate the strength and diversity of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit.
