Are You Providing an Education That Is Worth Caring About? Advice to Non-Native Teachers in Northern First Nations Communities
Oskineegish, Melissa
Canadian Journal of Education, v38 n3 2015
This article explores the development of culturally relevant teaching practices of non- Native teachers in First Nations communities. The findings were gathered from a qualitative study that asked First Nations and non-Native educators what they believed non-Native teachers needed to know about cultivating student success for First Nations students. Based on participants' personal stories, suggestions, and advice, this article encourages non-Native teachers to enrich their teaching practices through self-reflection, communication and community engagement, and the right kind of attitude. Participants suggest that these activities can help non-Native teachers create a learning environment that is meaningful to the students they teach.
