Promising Practices in First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Education: Case Studies of Two Alberta Schools
This report describes two case studies of practices implemented by two schools participating in Alberta (Canada) Education’s School-Community Learning Environment Project. The report provides a literature review of current research in Aboriginal Education, followed by a background section providing an overview of the School-Community Learning Environment Project. The literature review provides the foundation of the report, setting out five common themes of research about promising practices in Aboriginal Education. The two case studies draw from a broad spectrum of data, including test-score performance; surveys of parents, teachers, and staff; and interviews.
