Reflection:  Questions to think about

  • What is the definition of stereotype?
  • Can stereotypes be positive?
  • How can stereotypes be
    negative?
  • How have stereotypes impacted you or people you know?
  • What is success? By what standards is success measured?

  2. What have they done in their lives? Schooling, etc.? Why are they famous?
  3. What challenges have they faced? What successes?
  4. What are their contributions to society?
  5. Anything else?
  • Steve Keewatin
  • Winnipeg’s Most
  • Lee Maracle
  • Kent Monkman
  • Jordin Tootoo
  • Renee Pelletier

Regroup and share out. New groups should answer this question after everyone has shared:

Both of these readings are personal writes from Richard Wagamese, what is his message to the reader? In small groups you will discuss and share out.

  • How does the reading reflect one or more of the Indigenous Ways of Knowing and Being?
  • Can you see a contrast between traditional vs moderninity?

Good Morning!

*Student Acknowledgments: who wants to share their acknowledgement first?!

*Today we will head down to the library to choose a silent reading book (Indigenous authors please), learn about what the library has to offer (maker space, online resources, etc.), and much more!

Once the books are chosen, we should have some time to enjoy our new books.
