This course builds on First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Peoples: Understanding Traditional Teachings, Histories, Current Issues, and Cultures Part 1. It explores issues such as residential schools and takes an in-depth look at governance and nationhood as they pertain to FNMI peoples. The resilience of FNMI peoples and the current move toward self-government and nation-to-nation recognition and renewed identity will be also be examined. By the end of the course, candidates will understand the historic timelines of First Nations, Metis, an Inuit peoples, and be aware of current policies and documents that specifically affect their present situations.

This course also focuses on education for reconciliation. Candidates will consider some of the practical aspects of reworking curriculum in order to achieve that goal. Candidates will be asked to think critically about the Indigenous content of resources available in schools today, and to demonstrate an understanding of how those resources might need to be reviewed and revised.

Requirements

Application Requirements

1) OCT Membership showing completion of Part 1

2) CONFIRMATION OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE FORM

Signed by a Supervisory Official* from your Board confirming that you have one year (194 days) of teaching experience since becoming a certified teacher.

*The Ontario College of Teachers defines "Supervisory Official" as the Superintendent or Assistant Superintendent of the school board for a teacher employed by a Board of Education. A principal or headmaster is not recognized in this capacity. For a teacher employed by a private school, the "supervisory official" is the Ministry of Education official (Education Officer) appointed to your school. For overseas experience the appropriate Supervisory Official is the person your Principal reports to.

**Please note that if you have an existing Part 2, Part 3 (Specialist), or Honour Specialist qualification on your OCT record you are not required to submit a form for a Part 2 course. A new form is always required for Part 3 (Specialist).
