Braiding Histories

GOAL 8) The development of the ability to create opportunities for learning that utilizes relevant learning resources and technologies.

Using Susan Dion’s Braiding Histories, our module designed a series of lessons to deepen our perspectives on Aboriginal education. My group was given the chapter entitled “Listening – But What is Being Heard?” We led a storytelling exercise to demonstrate how dominant discourse can erase different voices and perspectives. Afterwards, a graffiti activity led into a discussion about the Canadian representation of First Peoples and how that affects us as educators.
