During this workshop we will:
- dive into the First Peoples Principles of Learning from the BC Early Learning
- discuss the impact colonization has had on the way we educate our children,
- look at ways to challenge the colonial structure that has been placed on education,
- explore ways to decolonize our practices, our classrooms and our selves.
The time that we spend together, exploring the shift in perspectives and working to move
away from colonial practices, will allow us to disrupt and challenge how we teach the
various truths inside and outside the classroom. It is important to identify who plays what role
in a child’s life, and why each role must be supported to create a healthy community.
