Di-Ci – What Works…
On this website, multi-level teams (classroom, school and board) of educators and students provide answers to the question, “What’s the difference that makes the difference?” as they discuss key factors that lead to student success and help close achievement gaps in their boards. Their stories are captured as Skype conversations with supporting artefacts and relevant data.
Dr. Susan Dion – Historical Timeline and Listening Stone Year 4
Dr. Susan Dion’s ‘Historical Primer’: An overview of post-contact relationships between First Nations people and newcomers. Drawing on her work as an Indigenous scholar and educator, Dr. Dion takes a complex history and breaks it down into a concise and tangible narrative that weaves her perspective and contrasts it to that of prevailing stories in Canadian society. She draws audiences’ attention to how ‘Prevailing stories’ play a role that impedes the teaching of history in ways that respect Indigenous experience in all its diversity, resistance, strength and hope.
