The intent of the Aboriginal Curriculum Integration project (ACIP) is to raise the profile of Aboriginal people in the curriculum and to raise awareness of the 2008 North American Indigenous Games occurring in the Cowichan Valley.
One of the goals is to present well developed curriculum that enhances student learning through high levels of engagement and accountability. Embedded in each lesson is the opportunity for students to share and rehearse their thinking and extend their understanding.
With this in mind, we believe it is important that the resources reflect the diverse nature of the Aboriginal people of B.C. and that the material developed be authentically reflective of the knowledge, culture, and history of Aboriginal people.
