Pulling Together in the Same Direction

As a preamble to my upcoming keynote at TESL Durham next Saturday, I thought I’d resurrect this piece that I wrote for Sheridan’s Alchemy newsletter a while back on connecting with our Indigenous Centre for Learning and Support. Reading through my old post, it’s interesting to see how things have changed, and how they haven’t.

  • It’s no longer called the Aboriginal Initiatives Office.
  • The Wai Nui o Kanaka Canoeing Club is now located in Port Credit.
  • I’m still connecting my teaching to our Canadian context, with authentic indigenous content.
  • I now know a few educators in #ESL #ELT whose focus is making meaningful  connections for learners and teachers (Yes, @yvetteinmb and @tilbury_shauna, I am talking about you)
  • I’d still like to see more meaningful incorporation of indigenous connections from educators.

I’ll be linking to my new piece on incorporating indigenous content into our teaching practice soon, when the new Alchemy issue comes out. In the meantime, please have a look:
