Foundations of a justice curriculum – Building Bridges of Understanding Between Nations
With the vision of building bridges between the First Nations and Canadian systems of law, First Nations Journeys of Justice honours oral history and teaches concepts and practices of justice from the perspective of First Nations ways of knowing. The program contains modules for grades 1-7. Each grade contains three separate units, which should be done in order, as concepts and stories previously introduced are often reviewed in later units.
Grade 1: Growing and Learning
Grade 2: Family and Community Involvement
Grade 3: Looking to the Future
Grade 4: What are my responsibilities?
Grade 5: What are the laws of my community and nation?
Grade 6: Journeys of Understanding
Grade 7: Journeys of Transformation
