Week 5- Treaty Education

Treaty education is pretty prominent in the Saskatchewan, and classroom curriculum today. I believe it is important to learn about it due to our history. No matter how many minority students are in the classroom, even if there aren’t any, it still should and will be taught. History is interesting, you can both learn and… Continue reading Week 5- Treaty Education Continue reading

Week 4- Decolonization

I agree with the many views this essay has to offer. Personally, I love the outdoors and this is all about First Nation learning. I believe the best way to learn is by doing. In high school, I would ‘go to the washroom’ in the middle of class. I would actually just go and walk… Continue reading Week 4- Decolonization Continue reading

Week 3- Assignment incite

The concept I am interested in is disability. Within my major in physical education, almost all my classes touch on physical and mental disabilities. Surprisingly, there are many barriers for people with physical or mental limitations within the educational system. From something as simple as getting to school, or class to studying in an environment… Continue reading Week 3- Assignment incite Continue reading

Reading Response 1- Common sense

When I read the title of this reading, I thought it would be about general common sense around knowledge. The more I read, the more I began to realize Kumashiro was speaking about common sense within the educational system. This reading also surprised me relating to the students and classroom setting. Usually, the Hindu religion… Continue reading Reading Response 1- Common sense Continue reading

Teacher Professionalism and Pay.

In one of our readings “Understanding Canadian Schools,” I noticed on page 7 in bold print “Is Teaching a Profession”? I have always thought being an educator was a true profession. When I read those few words it got me thinking, I wonder if some people do not think of teaching as a profession. I… Continue reading Teacher Professionalism and Pay. Continue reading

Week 9- Hierarchy in The School System

One great point I remember is how the school system can be compared to a factory. I never thought about it this way but it is extremely comparable. Students come in at a certain time, sit in certain rows and do certain jobs. Factory workers do the same, they show up to work at a… Continue reading Week 9- Hierarchy in The School System Continue reading

Week 8- Racial Tolerance and Brainwashing Students

We had a couple readings this week and they were both really interesting. The first one I read was on Racial Tolerance and Anti-Racist transformation. This talked about the two paradigms and it had categories to talk about. Some categories were ‘Assumptions about the sources of racial problems and conflicts’ and ‘working with parents’. They… Continue reading Week 8- Racial Tolerance and Brainwashing Students Continue reading

Week 7- Residential Schools and Philosophical Systems

One point that really stuck out to me is in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s, how teachers actually became teachers. In the 1880’s, you needed no formal education to become a teacher. In 1888 you finally needed some sort of training. The training consisted of only a few classes a month. Later on, they… Continue reading Week 7- Residential Schools and Philosophical Systems Continue reading
