Indigenous Student Success in Public Schools: A "We" Approach for Educators
Moon, Martha; Berger, Paul
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v62 n1 p1-18 Spr 2016
What does Indigenous student success look like in public school boards? Seven urban Indigenous educators' interview responses to this question were interpreted and reported by the lead author, a teacher and researcher of English, Irish, and Scottish heritage--a Settler Canadian. The "Connected Beads Model" is the result of these educator-to-educator interviews. It shows how Indigenous students' success can be promoted when Settler and Indigenous educators take a "We" stance alongside students, families, and communities through honoring story, relationship, and holism in school. The concepts embedded in the model and its practical applications are explored through participants' quotations and considered alongside related literature on Indigenous education.
