Description

An invaluable resource for educators looking to actively participate in reshaping education to include historically silenced voices in the classroom.

Re-Storying Education is a process of dismantling old narratives taught in education and rebuilding new narratives that include all the voices that have created this place known as Canada today. This vital and timely book outlines how colonialism has shaped both the country and the public school system. Re-Storying Education uses an Indigenous lens, offering ways to put Indigenous education, history, and pedagogy into practice. It invites readers into an open dialogue in the pursuit of a more inclusive and just educational landscape.

Drawing from her own experiences as an Indigenous student, educator, and administrator, in public and band-operated school systems, Indigenous academic Carolyn Roberts offers a deep understanding of how to support educators with Indigenous education and to create a nurturing and inclusive environment for all students. Re-Storying Education brings wider perspectives, connections to the land and the people of this land, and a deeper understanding of how relationships to these can change the educational experience for all students.

Re-Storying Education contains valuable lesson and assessment ideas, fostering the development of a critical lens in education. Roberts offers questions for self-reflection, suggestions for professional action, recommended resources for further learning, personal stories and anecdotes, insights from her own decolonizing teaching practices, and playlists that reflect the spirit of the work and that uplift Indigenous voices.

This is a must-have resource for all educators and change-makers in education today!

Reviews

"A gentle yet thorough overview and introduction, Re-Storying Education is packed with history and context to help educators decolonize their practices. Carolyn Roberts has written an excellent resource for navigating often-fraught waters, turning potential struggle into a hopeful journey of discovery and reconciliation."

"Woven in these pages is a masterful contribution to the field of education and to those who work in educating hearts, minds and spirits. I found myself lit up, excited, eager to turn each page and also inspired to slow down, reflect and let all the beauty in the pages find their rightful place in my own learning. Carolyn invites us to go on a journey with her, to be in relationship with her as we learn, unlearn, relearn and ignite our excitement in the joy of education. Re-Storying Education is full of knowledge, wisdom, truths and stories and will influence education for generations to come."
