Aboriginal Resource Document

INTRODUCTION

'A Sacred Journey: A Guide to Understanding and Supporting Aboriginal Students' was developed to assist our staff in supporting Aboriginal student success. The purpose of this resource will be used to build teacher capacity by providing valuable background information for staff on First Nation, Métis and Inuit heritage, history, traditions, cultural teachings and celebrations specific to Niagara. The resource provides instructional strategies, specific to the learning styles of Aboriginal students. In order to have a significant impact on student achievement and contribute to reducing the gap for our Aboriginal students, staff focus on respecting, understanding and embracing the importance of the Aboriginal culture to the students and community.
