Professional Development Activity

The following activity may be used by groups of educators to help develop understandings of the First Peoples’ Principles of Learning (FPPL) and think about how using the FPPL can impact classroom practice.

If working with a large group, follow the instructions below. If working with  a small number of people, just proceed with steps 1 and 2.

  1. Working in small groups (3-4), choose ONE of the principles from this website and read the information on that page.
  2. Discuss the following:
  • What stands out most to you? What resonates for you personally?
  • What do you see as having most potential for impact on schools or classroom practice? On your practice specifically?
  • What questions do you have? What might you want to know more about? How might you go about next steps in your learning?
  1. Record ideas and share out with large group.

*Remember, asking questions is the place where learning starts.
