Walk the Circle

Putting ReconciliACTION In Your Practice

Walk the Circle is an innovative online professional development opportunity that connects teachers with Indigenous artists, Knowledge Keepers, Elders and educators in a collaborative, safe environment to explore the Curriculum through Indigenous ways of knowing. 

Teachers can ask questions and further enhance their understanding of integrating Indigenous Ways of Knowing and Being, as well as the First Peoples Principles of Learning into their classroom. 

 

Participants will also be introduced to all kinds of easy to use media creation and online collaboration tools that they can bring back into the classroom to share with their students.
