Posted: September 26,2016

News Category : ETFO News

The First Nations, Métis and Inuit Growth Chart Literacy Prompts, Grades K-8 resource is a companion to the Growth Chartposter that highlights a variety of texts that include diverse worldviews, perspectives and presence of First Nations, Metis and Inuit (FNMI) experiences, histories, and knowledge. The purpose of this literacy resource is to continue to support members utilizing FNMI texts listed in the Growth Chart.

This resource includes prompt sheets organized by text and grade division. Each sheet includes seven “Literacy Prompts” to encourage digging deeper in thinking and expression and four “Enrichment Activities” that further promote knowledge building, understanding and dialogue. Specific curriculum connections were intentionally excluded from each prompt sheet as the texts could easily be applied to various subjects and/or grade divisions. Members are encouraged to add or modify this resource to better suit the needs of their students and instructional practice.

Please share this resource with your members.
