RELEASE OF NEW AND EXCITING COPA AND OTF RESOURCE FOR EDUCATORS: Joining the Circle-
COPA is proud to release our new multimedia toolkit, Joining the Circle multimedia toolkit. This new resource was designed to support safe, strong and free classrooms and schools. This original resource was created by COPA in partnership with the Ontario Teachers’ Federation through a grassroots approach in collaboration with First Nations, Métis and Inuit families and community leaders, and educators.
The project is funded by the Indigenous Education Office at the Ontario Ministry of Education.
Topics for discussion and reflection include pride and identity, understanding racism and discrimination, building and strengthening relationships with families and nurturing safe and healthy schools and communities.
First Nations, Métis and Inuit Elders who guided COPA, introduce the project and share the meaning and beauty of the circle and Joining the Circle.
To order the Joining the Circle toolkit, go to our eBoutique on this site. The kit has a limited run and is free of charge while supplies last. (COPA does charge for shipping.)
