English: First Peoples 12
Students will engage with a wide range of literature and access information from a variety of sources to evaluate its relevance and reliability. They will explore how First Peoples languages and texts reflect their cultures, knowledge, histories and worldviews. Students will think critically and reflectively to explore ideas within texts. As well as learning text features and structures, students will also explore protocols related to ownership and use of First Peoples oral texts and expectations when engaging with First Nation communities. This course meets the new Ministry of Education requirement for students to complete at least 4 credits in Indigenous-focused coursework before graduation.
Your Educator – Lauren Bell
Lauren grew up in Summerland, a tiny town in the Okanagan Valley, before journeying to Vancouver to pursue studies at the University of British Columbia. The size of her town and her love for learning encouraged her to study how to juggle, rolla bolla, spin plates, throw knives, and even stiltwalk. Upon graduating from highschool she turned towards the more academic studies of ancient civilizations and the stories of the past. Now, with a completed Bachelor’s Degree in History and a minor in English, Lauren is tutoring English and Humanities at BrainBoost. Her favourite past times include reading, writing, video-gaming, preparing gourmet meals, and drawing.
