About the Workshops

The First Nations Education Steering Committee and First Nations Schools Association invite First Nations school and community representatives to the development of the second level of the First Nations Language Essentials through the Education Partnerships Program.

Key agenda topics

The goals of the current project are to prepare educators to teach First Nations Languages so that students can participate in basic communications and begin to tell simple stories through various methodologies such as Total Physical Response (TPR) methods and TPR storytelling.
