Whose voices are heard in your classrooms, and why? The Alberta Program of Studies in its current (and likely future) form calls for the inclusion of Aboriginal and Francophone perspectives, and there are many others that we might want to engage with as well. This task, however, is tricky. How might we engage with perspectives in meaningful ways? Many teachers fear the inclusion of perspectives and points-of-view that are not their own. This session will provide tools, tips, and tricks, as well as a theoretical foundation to help teachers feel confident that they can engage respectfully with perspectives within and beyond their classroom. Although this session is connected to the social studies curriculum, much of the content may also be of interest to those in ELA, Second Languages, and other teaching areas.
