Partner Schools and Teachers
In response to the discovery of inappropriate content in a Social Studies course previously distributed by ADLC, specifically in reference to Residential School experiences, ADLC has implemented a systematic review of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit content in all of its courses.
Starting on September 24, 2018, with the assistance and guidance of staff from Alberta Education Field Services, as well as First Nations, Métis, and Inuit content specialists, ADLC teachers began reviewing course content in search of First Nations, Métis, Inuit and particularly, Residential School, references. This process is expected to continue throughout the 2018-2019 school year.
As references are found, ADLC teachers, along with content specialists, will analyze it for appropriateness using the Guiding Voices Evaluation Tool as a filter. Edits and revisions will be applied as necessary, and students and partner schools will be notified of such changes.
During this process, student enrollments will continue. Students and partner schools are urged to inform ADLC if they encounter any content of which they may have any question or concerns.
Please use the ADLC FNMI Course Review Form for Partner Schools to submit your comments.
For questions related to this review process, please contact ADLC Principal Steven Kaplan at 1-866-774-5333, ext. 5151 or [email protected]
