Kw'atindee Bino Community Teacher Education Program. Intern Profiles: Community and School Partnerships; Culture and Learning; Curriculum and Children.
Dogrib Divisional Board of Education, Rae-Edzo (Northwest Territories).
This document contains three intern "profiles" that are used to record the progress of students through the coursework of the Kw'atindee Bino Community Teacher Education Program. The interns (student teachers) learn their teaching knowledge, skills, and attitudes while engaged in classroom teaching. The profiles outline the material to be covered. Each intern is evaluated with a variety of measures, and when the intern has covered the material or has demonstrated a skill, the instructor marks the appropriate description in the profile. Hours spent on each objective are noted as a bridge for articulation with the teacher education program at Arctic College in Fort Smith. The Culture and Learning Profile covers five courses that root teacher education in the culture of the society they serve: Land and Life Skills; Language Literacy in Dogrib; Language, Literacy and Meaning; Cultural Research and Documentation; and Media Applications. Knowledge and skills learned in these courses are integrated during the production of a video or print learning resource. The Community and School Partnerships Profile covers four courses: Basic Helping Skills; Health and Social Issues in Dogrib Communities; Introduction to Parental Involvement; and Utilizing the Community as a School Resource. These courses are integrated through a special project of practical application. The Curriculum and Children Profile covers the traditional teacher education coursework of theory, methods, and practical skills necessary for effective curriculum delivery in an integrated, process-oriented, child-centered, culture-based school program.
