Aboriginal Education Day


This year's Education Day to be held Thursday, November 17th in Toronto, Ontario.

Education Day is organized with the assistance and support of the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario, the Ontario Teachers' Federation, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association, the Ministry of Education and the TransCanada Corporation.

Students will have a number of topic options from as many as thirty teaching stations in the building ranging from heritage and culture, traditional games, dancing and more. The majority of the teaching stations are participatory.

All of the teachings are directly tied to the school curriculum for Native Studies through the use of teaching guides prepared by the Aboriginal Teachers Committee of the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario.

Teachers attending with their classes are provided with printed materials, including the teaching guides and more to assist them in teaching Native Studies.

Surveys of Teachers in attendance over the past five years have given Education Day a ninety plus percentage approval rate.
