It is back! Treaty Ed Camp 2.0 is happening October 1, 2016 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm! There is an optional pipe ceremony at 7:00 am!
#TreatyEdCamp 2.0 is the free personal and professional development event sponsored and organized by UR S.T.A.R.S. Based loosely on the EdCamp model, this is PD organized for teachers by teachers, with a particular focus on the implementation of Treaty Education in classrooms as well as on the role of schools and educators in the work of reconciliation.
The day will be structured around three big questions: What does Treaty Education mean; how do we do it; and what does reconciliation look like in our schools, classrooms, and communities? We are bringing together some awesome teachers who are doing Treaty Education in their classrooms to share their experiences, and we ask that you come with an open mind and prepared to share and discuss your own experiences. If you are interested in presenting, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Everyone will leave this event with new resources, a better understanding of Treaty Education in practice, a network of people to rely on for support, and a greater understanding of the significance of Treaty to our work as educators and to the process of reconciliation.
This year, we’re offering the option to purchase a lunch for $5.00. Lunch includes soup, bannock, and a drink. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a vegetarian or gluten free option. In order to ensure that we have enough food, lunch must be purchased in advance through Eventbrite, and sales of lunch tickets will be closed on September 19th. Please note that if you choose not to purchase lunch, TreatyEdCamp tickets are free (but we do ask that you sign up through Eventbrite so that we have an idea of numbers!).
