FNS-160

First Nations Education: Traditional and Contemporary

3 credits

First Nations Studies 160: First Nations Traditional and Contemporary Education was developed by North Island College to meet the needs and demands for a culturally relevant First Nations course about education with credits that transfer to other post secondary institutions. In the context of the Human Service Worker Teaching Assistant Certificate program this course will provide core content about aboriginal education, which permits students to explore and critically examine traditional, historical and contemporary ideas, processes, development, and issues in the field in which they practice. First Nations Studies 160 is designed to address historical and contemporary issues that include First Nations perspectives about the content and process of education. This is facilitated by using and reflecting on First Nations teaching and learning techniques and bringing First Nations voices into the discussions and lectures through text, audio-visual resources and visitors. Instruction is based in a dialogical approach that permits students to use their knowledge in interaction with the instructor about the readings, videos, and presentations they experience. The class format will be a seminar/talking circle in which the instructor serves as a facilitator to mediate dialogue and manage curricular progression. The format will include group work and cooperative learning activities that includes orientation to WEBCT, the Internet, oral and textual resources for networking, research and knowledge production. First Nations Studies is designed for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students.

Prerequisite(s):

  • C in one of Provincial English 12, ENG 096, ENG 098, ESL 090, or equivalent articulated BC College course, as pre- or co-requisite; or placement testing.
