Anti-racism journey for educators with students
Rating

This learning path is a professional development learning journey and set of classroom resources, grounded in social and emotional learning and curated by experts in the field of equity and inclusion, restorative practices, and education technology. It empowers educators to build the knowledge and capability needed to support equity and anti-racist work with students.

Educators must be courageous and confident in their journey to fully participate in dismantling racism in their learning environments. The intention of this learning path is to deeply question power, privilege, and fragility to interrupt teaching practices that marginalize, isolate, and exclude black, indigenous, people of color (BIPOC) students in the classroom.

In this learning path, you'll:
Deconstruct power, privilege, marginalization, and fragility
Develop individual accountability for becoming an anti-racist.
Apply social and emotional learning skills to learn how to teach from an anti-racist mindset toward building equity in the classroom

Sun West School Division Land Acknowledgement Development & Guide
Unrestricted Use
Public Domain
Rating

This document is meant to serve as a guide as your school begins to write its own land acknowledgement. Writing a land acknowledgement as a collaborative process can be a rewarding and meaningful experience for staff, students, parents and all involved. It is a time to reflect on the history of the land we are on and our relationship to the land. Our current relationship to the land is inextricably intertwined with our relationship with Indigenous Peoples.

nêhiyawêwin (Cree) language learning resources
Rating

The University of Regina Press has made a number of excellent resources available online for open access. These resources, developed by Jean Okimâsis include a grammar guide, a workbook, and links to audio resources.
The resource include:
- a grammar guide, available as a PDF for download
- a link to the Language Lab user guide
- a Language Lab Workbook
- a Soundcloud link to Cree Language of the Plains audio sessions
- an Open Access link to a page that has all the above resources available in different formats.

Jean Okimâsis and Arok Wolvengrey also wrote a fantastic resource “How to Spell it in Cree“, which you can download as a PDF. It lays out the rules of a standardized written Cree, but also does important work of addressing the criticisms of standardization. It challenges the notion that we can ever use English to ‘phonetically’ represent the Cree language, champions a specific orthography for Cree, and describes how standardization, rather than destroying or degrading the language, will help ensure Cree continues to survive.
