The Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Calls to Action document (2015) challenges teachers and administrators from K–12 to take a serious look at course content, classroom management approaches, teaching styles, and all other elements of the education system through the lens of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit (FNMI) viewpoints. To do this respectfully and authentically requires a deeper knowledge of FNMI histories, traditions, cultures, and world views than many teachers and administrators have hitherto been able to acquire through taking an Additional Qualification course. It requires guided relearning of what was thought to be “known” and exposure to the current reality of Canada's First Peoples. This course will help students do just that in a supportive environment in which questions can be asked and answers found together through a learning circle. This course will enable you to begin to respond to the Calls to Action in your classroom and your school.
