The examples in this power point are from NESD teachers
Much gratitude for creating with your students and sharing
Let’s see how teachers are using
the medicine wheel in the classroom:
For too long, First Nation teachings were not invited to have a place in European
education. The time has come where we can see how balanced an educational
delivery can be with the understanding of the medicine wheel. It is a way to teach
global thinking!
After a Medicine Wheel teachings workshop the teachers then created
their own Medicine Wheels for use in their classrooms.
