Full Circle: First Nations, Métis, Inuit Ways of Knowing

Full Circle: First Nations, Métis, Inuit Ways of Knowing

This project is the culmination of work done by 16 members of OSSTF/FEESO, most of whom are First Nation or Métis, or work extensively with Indigenous students.

The Métis Resource is a companion to the Common Threads V—Full Circle: First Nations, Métis and Inuit Ways of Knowing resource. This resource, published in 2021, is the culmination of work completed by a team of Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF/FEESO) members along with staff from the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO). To maintain consistency, the the same format as the Full Circle resource is used so that there would be familiarity for those who have used it in the past.

The lessons are designed to be implemented in a range of courses, such as civics, history, social sciences, English, geography, business, careers, physical education and science.  The resource has been produced as a PDF file on CD with an accompanying video on DVD.  Although the lessons are intended for use with high school curricula, the video and activity sheet may be of use to all Federation members who work with students.

As with any lesson plan resource, educators are encouraged to adapt what is written here to fit the needs of your students, and to address any curricular expectations in the course that you use them in.

Please note that textbook pages from Aboriginal Peoples In Canada and Aboriginal Beliefs, Values and Aspirations have not been reproduced in the online version.
