"Achieving Indigenous Student Success presents goals and strategies needed to support Indigenous learners in the classroom. This book is for all teachers, grade 9 to grade 12, who have Indigenous students in their classrooms or who are looking for ways to infuse an Indigenous worldview into their curriculum. Although the author's primary focus is the needs of Indigenous students, the ideas are best practices that can be applied in classroom-management techniques, assessment tools, suggestions for connecting to the Indigenous community, and much more! The strategies and information in this resource are about building bridges between cultures that foster respect, appreciation, and understanding."--
