Building Up Our First Nations Lesson Writing Session 3
Presented by: Chris Zarski
Tuesday, December 10, 2019 | 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Location:
Central Alberta Regional Consortium 8 Page Avenue, Red Deer, AB
About the Session:

This session will be the third of three opportunities for partner jurisdictions who built Math, Science and Social Studies Kits to support First Nations understanding and making curriculum connections, to add to the kits.  In the building and sharing of the kits, jurisdictions were asked to commit to adding and building the materials that are found within each kit.  Multiple opportunities to engage in writing with your colleagues are provided in hopes that everyone can attend at least one session. 

Please bring along any resources you have and a laptop. All materials created will be shared out to participating jurisdictions.
