I am excited to announce the third installment of the Kikinoo’amaagoowin Webinar Series: Indigenous Perspectives Through Art Across the Curriculum
Click here to join us for FREE on Thursday January 31st at 7pm EST OR sign up to receive the recording for free.
Are you looking for meaningful ways to bring Indigenous understandings of art into your teaching practice? Are you interested in Indigenous art, but have questions and concerns about appropriation and how to avoid it? Are you looking for resources that can assist you in sharing these concepts with your students?
This month Becky Greenhow from School District 79 Cowichan on Vancouver Island will be sharing her experience with including Indigenous perspectives in classrooms through Coast Salish art. She will share concrete examples from an ongoing Pilot Project in Kindergarten all the way through to Grade 12, and across diverse subject areas like Science, Social Science, Writing, Math, and Fine Arts. She will also discuss ways to make this work accessible to students who hold a variety of skills and who experience different accessibility barriers.
