We invite you to submit articles for our upcoming issue:
1) Starting a Circle: Exploring Aboriginal Education.
This issue is devoted to exploring the vital importance as well as challenges of integrating Aboriginal perspectives, voices, texts, curricula and teaching and learning practices within English Language Arts. We invite educators and scholars from British Columbia and beyond to explore how the First Peoples Principles of Learning are taken up in classroom practices as well as significant issues arising from landmark events and curricular shifts in BC, which reflect larger questions related to the future of Aboriginal Education and English Language Arts.
Topics may include:
Reconciliation: What does reconciliation mean in our classrooms? How can we support students in finding their role within reconciliation? What legacies of residential schools remain in BC schools and beyond, and how can we as Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal educators address these in our practices?
Aboriginal Content: How do we increase our ability to integrate Aboriginal content throughout our educational practice? How do we work proactively as a professional community towards these ends?
Engagment and Inclusion: What approaches support engagement, inclusion, powerful outcomes and greater success for Aboriginal learners in English Language Arts? What practices support increased Aboriginal graduation outcomes?
English First Peoples 10-12: How do we meaningfully and ethically integrate First Peoples’ texts and curriculum into our practices? What barriers and tensions exist and how do we address these?
First Peoples Principles of Learning: How do we use these in our classrooms to improve learning for all students? How can they guide our course planning and selection/evaluation of classroom resources?

Sign up for a tool specific hands-on workshop about the core concepts of citation management and detailed instruction for use of either Zotero, ProQuest Flow, or Mendeley.
Regression analysis is a statistical process for estimating the relationships among variables. We can use regression to make quantitative predictions of one variable from the values of another.
