Métis History & Identity
(More than Mixed)

Educators require accurate foundational knowledge that builds competency and confidence in Métis education. Together, we will explore and examine the narrative of historical and contemporary issues that have influenced who we are as a people. Learning about the strong, diverse Métis Nation will benefit all students.

When We Know More We Do Better
(TQS/LQS)

Together we will address the current Alberta mandate to meet TQS/LQS competencies. Participants will have the opportunity to dig deeper into the Alberta Teacher Quality Standard (TQS) and/or the Alberta Leadership Quality Standard (LQS) while exploring authentic Métis education resources. This professional learning opportunity will allow schools to showcase what they are already doing and make plans for, “What’s next?”

Métis Literature Across the Curriculum 

Why Literacy is More Than Language Arts

Choosing quality, authentic Métis literature is an important consideration for all educators when using stories to teach. How can literature be used to teach cross-curricular outcomes? How can literature be used as a springboard to teach project-based learning? 

Exploring Authentic Métis Resources

This session is designed for participants to explore several authentic recommended resources that help to create teachable moments and provide meaningful learning opportunities. Together we will explore online resources to create meaningful lessons, engaging activities, and develop professional development appropriate for staff and parents.

RCTL Train the Trainer

This training is for Métis educators who are citizens of the Métis Nation of Alberta to become RCTL professional learning facilitators. 

Our robust online course empowers educators to meet the increasing demand for information in K-12 Métis Education.

One Size Does Not Fit All. What Do You Need?

Rupertsland Centre for Teaching & Learning (RCTL) understands that each region/school/district is unique. We understand that your needs may differ to deliver the best for your students and staff. We will design an exclusive professional learning session tailored for your staff.
