Salmon in the Schools: Educator Activity Guide & Resource Manual
"Supporting local Elder and knowledge keeper participation in these educational programs should be a priority for educators." - Salmon in the Schools First Nations Cultural Guidelines - Rivers to Ridges designed the Educator Activity Guide & Resource Manual in 2018, with revised Yukon curriculum in mind. Learning targets are set for each lesson (or game) based on learning standards (curricular competencies + content), as well as accompanying assessment rubrics. While lessons are designed with one grade in mind, they may be used as an exemplar and adapted to specific grades and subject areas as needed.
These activities were piloted in schools across the Yukon in 2017-2018 and the current English (and soon French!) versions have been modified based on experience and community feedback.
"It's great to have access to more resources in French and have support from a knowledgeable team." - Whitehorse teacher, French pilot program
