This course is designed to help educators better understand and interpret the significance of recent curricular initiatives in Alberta and across Canada that emphasize Indigenous perspectives across subject areas and grade levels. The class will consider the philosophies and wisdom traditions of Indigenous knowledge systems and the curricular and pedagogical implications of these. The class will also focus in on particular subject area concerns, individually and collectively, and consider the critical contributions that Indigenous knowledge systems and perspectives could play in these classroom contexts. One of the unifying messages of this course is that Indigenous curriculum perspectives provide a unique opportunity for teachers to creatively rethink and reframe their approaches to teaching and learning. Credit may only be obtained for one of EDSE 409 or EDES 409.
