Description

Integrating Aboriginal Perspectives into the School Curriculum: Purposes, Possibilities, and Challenges by Yatta Kanu, professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Manitoba, offers interested scholars and educators both theoretical and practical arguments for developing creative thinking in the field of Aboriginal curricula and policy. Conducting six years of empirical research the author draws conclusions that can apply to diverse cultural peoples. The overall goal is to increase student engagement, learning, and success. The book is carefully organized and presents the reasons for conducting research and integrating Aboriginal perspectives in the curriculum and classroom; Understanding the integration of Aboriginal perspectives through theory; Cultural mediators of Aboriginal student learning in the formal school system; Critical elements of instruction influencing Aboriginal school success; and Teachers' perceptions of the integration of Aboriginal perspectives. Limited attention is paid to Aboriginal communities and parents in this model. The book is helpful for student and new teachers because it devotes a chapter to teachers' perceptions of the integration of Aboriginal perspectives. Recommended.
