Free FNESC Math Workshop

Math 8 & 9 First Peoples Workshop

MFP (1)A Professional Development Workshop for Teachers
March 14, 2014, Vancouver, Metropolitan Hotel
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.
All participants will receive a copy of the resource Teaching Mathematics in a First Peoples Context, Grades 8 & 9, engage in discussions with colleagues and sample hands-on math activities.
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.
