Teachers are invited to a day-long workshop to explore how to incorporate math instruction approaches that reflect the realities of First Peoples in BC, while meeting provincially prescribed standards for mathematics.
By learning about the content, perspectives, and teaching approaches shared in this workshop, teachers will be able to help students of all backgrounds better understand the importance of mathematical thinking within all human cultures and appreciate the significant place of First Peoples within the historical and contemporary fabric of this BC.
FNESC, the First Nations Schools Association and the provincial government continue to develop First Peoples curriculum and classroom resources with the goal of increasing Aboriginal student achievement and creating more inclusive schools that reflect First Nations issues and realities.
