Middle Years Health Education from a First Nations Perspective: Video Series and Lesson Guide

MFNERC is pleased to share our “Middle Years Health Education from a First Nations Perspective: Video Series and Lesson Guide.” This teacher resource provides educators with the proper support and knowledge to educate middle-year students about healthy relationships, human sexuality, bodies, nutrition, and substance use/misuse. We have included videos of Elders and Knowledge Keepers sharing their perspectives on a person’s physical, emotional, social, mental, and spiritual aspects regarding their health education. The lessons come with measurable learning outcomes so that students can participate in healthy, active lifestyles. We also included additional resources for each section, so students and teachers can explore the topics further.

Congratulations to the 20 graduates of the Masters in Language and Literacy (MILL) program.

“About four years ago, leaders from the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre Inc. (MFNERC) approached the UM Faculty of Education to work together to create an M.Ed. cohort,” Watt explains. “The cohort was to focus on Inclusive Language and Literacy within a First Nations education context. The resulting consultative process with First Nations educators and Elders allowed for a discussion of the needs of Indigenous students.”

The first UM Faculty of Education’s first Master’s cohort in curriculum, teaching and learning, partnered with MFNERC to train educators for First Nations communities, will see 22 Indigenous educators graduate this fall.
