Toronto Catholic District School Board

FNMI Program and Literacy Department joined together for the 2017 Teachers' Symposium entitled: "Continuing Our Grown and Understanding in Indigenous Education."  The event was held at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto on April 4th.  In the morning, author and educator Jenny Kay Dupuis presented her book I Am Not A Number,  and shared "how Indigenous literature can help to spark conversations about Indigenous realities and honour community voices." In the afternoon, teachers had the opportunity of choosing from three sessions.  One session occurred at the Bata Shoe Museum.  One session took place at the Spadina Road Library which houses the largest selection of FNMI materials in the city, and in the third session teachers were treated to a bus tour sponsored by First Story Toronto.  Once again, Good Minds was present to provide teachers with the opportunity to explore FNMI books and resources for their classroom.
