How can schools support Aboriginal student success?

Research Tells Us :

By Integrating Aboriginal Teaching and Values into the Classroom.

A number of factors contribute to the academic success of Aboriginal students. These include the following:

• educators who have high expectations and truly care for Aboriginal students.

• classroom environments that honour Aboriginal students’ culture, language, world view and knowledge.

• teaching practices that reflect Aboriginal learning styles (e.g., differentiated instruction and evaluation).

• schools that have strong partnerships with the Aboriginal community.
