This third and final part of First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Peoples: Understanding Traditional Teachings, Histories, Current Issues and Cultures, Specialist, is intended to provide candidates with an overview of some of the issues and changes needed in education in order to answer the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. It focuses on the inclusive aspects of traditional pedagogy, and encourages candidates to examine their own experiences in the education system. The final material in this course outlines the steps candidates can take to conduct their own action research projects. It also prepares them to make presentations that will provide school and community audiences with authentic, respectful information regarding the need for changes in classrooms and schools.

Requirements

Application Requirements

1) OCT Membership showing completion of Part 2.

2) CONFIRMATION OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE FORM

Signed by a Supervisory Official* from your School Board confirming that you have two years (388 days) of teaching experience since becoming a certified teacher, one year (194 days) of which is in the subject area of this course.

*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 a new form is always required for a Part 3 (Specialist) course as experience is course/subject specific.
