WAPIKONI TEACHING GUIDE: AN INTRODUCTION TO THE DIVERSITY OF INDIGENOUS CULTURES IN CANADA

The Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCUNESCO) and Wapikoni Mobile are pleased to present the new Wapikoni Teaching Guide: An introduction the diversity of Indigenous cultures in Canada.  This teaching guide was developed mainly for high school teachers and students to introduce the diversity of Indigenous nations in Canada.  It contains turnkey material that can be adapted to the grade level and subject matter being taught.

This guide was developed in collaboration with experts, members and Indigenous partners of CCUNESCO and Wapikoni, and with teachers of the UNESCO Associated Schools Network.

The guide can be downloaded here.

FALL TEXTBOOK ORDERS

The UPEI bookstore is requesting textbook orders for Fall 2019 classes before
14-June-2019. 
Book orders for the semester can be submitted by email or through the on-line order form.

Please be sure to send the correct ISBN, especially for text packages and/or e-books to ensure ordering of the proper text books.

If there is no text book required for a course, please notify the Bookstore so that this can be noted on the student text list. Also, please indicate if your course is cross listed.

Please include the ISBN for any access codes/e-books that your course offers in your order. Please indicate if the access code is a requirement for the students to pass the course, or if it would be recommended for studying.

The Bookstore would like to give students more options for course materials (Binder editions, E-texts, Softcover, Used Books etc)

If you require students to have other course materials such as specific calculators, dissection kits, clickers, graph paper, notebooks etc. you can email the bookstore to ensure they have sufficient quantities in the store. Many students take advantage of the different forms of payment offered (such as charging to their student account), so being able to offer the supplies as well as the text provides them with the convenience of purchasing everything together.

The Faculty encourages all instructors to utilize the service of the bookstore as much as possible.

Your cooperation is much appreciated.
