Planning Guide and Framework for Development of Aboriginal Learning Resources

This Planning Guide and Framework is designed to help educators and Aboriginal communities work in partnership to develop learning resources that reflect and honour the cultures and history of the Aboriginal peoples. Recognizing that no one text could possibly include everything students might need to learn about any one culture, the focus here is on creating a learning resource that:

- teachers can use to support the provincially prescribed curriculum

- helps students throughout British Columbia to better understand the rich diversity of Aboriginal cultures that exist in the province and, in particular, to learn more about the First Nation whose traditional territory embraces the places where they live and attend school.

The Planning Guide and Framework includes best-practice examples from recent Aboriginal learning resources, such as those shown on the following two pages, and ?key ideas? that experienced resource developers have found it helpful to keep in mind when engaged in this type of work.
