Summary of Changes Made in This Calendar - Literacy and the Indigenous Child in a Canadian Context, Ages 9 - 12

Education 3150 Literacy and the Indigenous Child in a Canadian Context, Ages 9 - 12
Teacher candidates will continue to build on the professional knowledge and skills developed in EDUC 2150, including professional knowledge about the development of Indigenous children's (ages 9-12) oral language, reading and writing proficiency, with particular attention to children with special needs. They will extend their learning to include literacy, such as literacy across the curriculum, critical literacy, media and multiliteracies. An emphasis will be placed on the centrality of Indigenous worldviews within Canada and children's constructions of their Indigenous identity/ies, Indigenous children's literature and resources and response to texts.
