IMPACTE: Indian-Metis Project for Careers Through Teacher Education.
Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
The primary goal of the Indian-Metis Project for Careers through Teacher Education (IMPACTE) is to increase the number of certified teachers of native origin in Manitoba. The desire to obtain a teaching certificate and a mature student's university admission are the only requirements; high school graduation is not required. IMPACTE students are required to complete the same number of credit hours with the same grade proint average as other candidates; however, a much greater emphasis is placed on classroom experience. It is the hope of this project that native teachers will give young native Indians in Manitoba a positive image of themselves as a minority group. (JB)
