Infusing Aboriginal Content and Perspectives

Into Your Teaching Practice

At OISE, we encourage all of our teacher candidates, graduates, and researchers to actively acknowledge the importance of the First Peoples of Turtle Island and to teach about their histories, cultures and perspectives to all students.  This section contains resources to help you infuse your practice with the perspectives of Aboriginal populations.

Sarah Foster - Teacher Candidate on infusing Aboriginal content and perspectives and teaching and learning about Residential Schools

Sarah Foster and her grade 3/4 students discuss the importance of learning about Aboriginal history and current issues. Sarah was a teacher candidate in the Aboriginal focussed cohort of the Elementary Consecutive BEd program at OISE/UT (which has now been replaced by the MT program). In the four weeks of her first practicum placement in a grade 3/4 class at St. Vincent de Paul Separate School in Toronto, Sarah expanded on Social Studies curriculum expectations to include a study of Aboriginal history.  In these interviews both Sarah and her students talk about the importance of teaching and learning about this history.
