Interactive website project sought broad input from a diverse team of educators and members of Indigenous communities

Calgary, AB – A University of Calgary online database will help teachers build the foundational knowledge and competencies they require for integrating Indigenous knowledge and perspectives into K-12 classrooms. Initiated by Werklund School of Education’s Aubrey Hanson, PhD, associate professor, and Erin Spring, PhD, associate professor, the website Books to Build On: Indigenous Literatures for Learning was launched in April and provides details on more than 250 books, poems, songs, art collections and websites by Indigenous creators from Treaty 7 territory and across North America.

Lesson plans outlining how the resources can be applied in the classroom accompany many of the entries. Hanson and Spring believe that teachers who consult the repository will be assured of addressing both the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s education-related Calls to Action, as well as Alberta Education’s Teaching Quality Standard, which requires K-12 educators to support the learning of all students by using resources that reflect the diversity of Indigenous communities.
