Aboriginal Content in the Curriculum: Exploring Historical Relationships between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Peoples

 (90 minutes)

38694This experiential workshop will help participants understand how colonization of the land we now know as British Columbia and Canada has impacted the people who lived here long before settlers arrived. Through this exercise participants will explore the nation-to-nation relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada, how this relationship has been damaged over the years, and how we can work toward reconciliation.

 

Classroom Management

(3 to 5 hours; may be split into two parts)

38702 This workshop provides a framework for creating a classroom management plan that includes preventing problems, taking action when problems arise and intervening with individual students. This framework allows teachers to create a management plan that is based on positive behaviour support but is flexible to accommodate many strategies and teaching styles. Included is the opportunity to re-examine personal practice and beliefs, explore respectful discipline approaches and expand classroom management strategies.

This workshop has been adapted for online facilitation.

Notes: There is another workshop on Challenging Behaviour that deals with individual students in more depth. There is also a workshop on Classroom Management for TTOCs.

Creating a Gender-Inclusive School Culture

Although the focus is on trans, non-binary and gender diverse students, gender-inclusive schools help all students to feel safe at school.

Deconstructing Myths

(3 hours)

38692 In this workshop participants are submerged into the depths of the mistruths that have made up the belief systems of mainstream Canada for far too long. Participants will be challenged to dig deeper through research, which must include historical documentation and oral testimony as opposed to acceptance of archaic misinformation and hidden fabricated narratives. In a commitment to the continuation of the work that teachers started with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, BCTF invites all teachers to join in the effort to seek truth through the deconstruction of myths in curriculum.

 

Déconstruire les stéréotypes

(3 heures)

38807 Dans cet atelier, les participants sont plongés au coeur des erreurs sur lesquelles, pendant trop longtemps, s’est fondé le système de croyance de la majorité des Canadiens. Les participants sont invités à approfondir grâce aux recherches (incluant de la documentation historique et des témoignages oraux) et à ne plus simplement accepter la désinformation archaïque et les faux récits. La FECB, dans son engagement de poursuivre le travail que les enseignants ont entamé avec la Commission vérité et réconciliation, invite tous les enseignants à se joindre à l'effort de mise en lumière de la vérité grâce à la déconstruction des stéréotypes dans le curriculum.

 

Education for All: 21st Century Inclusion for Special Education Students

(3-5 hours)

38706 The guiding principle of this workshop is that students enter our classrooms with diverse backgrounds and experiences. As teachers, we need a sense of who our learners are and how can we support them in moving forward with their learning. This workshop focuses on four case studies of students and outlines their specific areas of strengths and challenges. Strategies for instruction based on individual learning profiles are suggested. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Differentiated Instruction (DL) are described and explored. Designing instruction to include assessment for learning opportunities to encourage learners to move forward along the learning continuum are included in this workshop.

 

Exploration des rapports entre l’autorégulation et la « franco-salade »

(3 heures)

38815 La classe d’immersion française ou francophone situe l’élève dans un environnement qui contraste avec les repères langagiers et culturels auxquels il s’identifie. Ceci représente souvent un défi supplémentaire, non seulement pour ce dernier, mais aussi pour les enseignants. L’autorégulation est une compétence permettant à l’élève de réagir de manière consciente, délibérée et réfléchie aux diverses situations et à son environnement. Elle permet à l’élève de faire appel à ses connaissances et stratégies afin d’atteindre des buts précis, incluant celui de parler, apprendre et réussir en français. L’objectif de cet atelier d’exploration est de partager quelques stratégies simples et efficaces favorisant l’autorégulation dans la classe d’immersion ou francophone en milieu minoritaire. Dans cet atelier, nous nous intéresserons aux thèmes suivants :

  • l’établissement d’un environnement personnel et collectif d’apprentissage;
  • l’organisation du travail;
  • l’autonomie de l’apprenant;
  • la motivation d’apprendre en français.

À la fin de cette activité, vous aurez quelques scénarios, idées et outils à mettre en pratique dans votre classe. En conséquence, vous aurez plus de temps pour offrir un accompagnement plus personnalisé à ceux et celles qui en ont le plus besoin.

40098 Les attentes du public sont grandes, la composition des classes, les coupures dans l'éducation, et une responsabilisation accrue affectent les écoles, les enseignants et les élèves.

Tout l'accent est mis sur la construction de solutions communes face aux exigences du travail et face à l'isolement de l'enseignement. Les participants rient, racontent leurs histoires, en évaluant leur équilibre vie personnelle et vie professionnelle. Ils explorent les manières de se sentir bien et de créer un milieu de travail qui soit sain. Il est recommandé que cet atelier se tienne si possible en dehors de l'école.

 

Infuser contenu et perspectives autochtones dans votre enseignement

La gestion de conflits

(3-5 heures)

38832 Les conflits sont inévitables dans des groupes, mais ils n'ont pas besoin de provoquer la division et l'animosité s’ils sont gérés efficacement.
