Cultural Atlas as a Pedagogical Strategy

The content of the course provides an in-depth look at how teachers can integrate technology and academics with oral traditions and offers a vehicle for helping communities define themselves and their unique cultural identity.


Teachers will have an opportunity to guide their students through a positive collaboration with local culture-bearers, community members and educational personnel. The multimedia resources for this course provide numerous examples of cultural atlases and guidance on ways in which the rich oral traditions of Native people can be drawn upon in support of the school curriculum.
