UNAVAILABLE This title is no longer available from the publisher Teaching in a Cold and Windy Place: Change in an Inuit School is the well-documented monograph about school change in the Canadian context. This first-person account by Joanne Tompkins details her four years in an Inuit school on Baffin Island, Northwest Territories (Nunavut). Tompkins began her teaching in the community of Anurapaktuq in 1987. She notes that the school was not meeting the needs of the community but after four years of staff and community involvement things began to change. The narrative explains the conditions and methods of staff and community to make changes in community-based education. As principal, Tompkins relates her view of this role in school change. Topics include cross-cultural issues, teacher/student relationships, relationship of language and empowerment, teaching, and the role of the principal. Joanne Tompkins is a lecturer in Diverse Cultures, Sociology of Education, and First Nations Education in the Department of Education at St. Francis Xavier University.
