Following a three year University of Alberta study, this session brings forth the experiences of three Aboriginal Teacher Education Program (ATEP) pre-service teachers and their mentor teachers, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous. Throughout the study our researchers recognized a disconnection amongst the in-service teachers’ understanding of curriculum outcomes and the implementation of TQS #5. Many were concerned that there was not space within the curriculum for Indigenous foundational knowledges and understood this endeavour to be an add on. However, collaboratively, mentor and pre-service teachers worked together to weave Indigenous foundational knowledges throughout their Social Studies curriculum and pedagogical practices. Within this presentation you will hear stories of Indigenous ways of being and coming to know, as well as concrete classroom examples to think alongside.
