Lesson Plans

We have developed engaging lesson plans designed to support and build Alberta educators’ competency to meet the new Alberta Teacher Quality Standard. Our lesson plans align with Alberta’s curriculum to benefit ALL students in an authentic, purposeful way. Educators have the opportunity to build their foundational knowledge while delivering Métis content based lessons within their current best practices.
