EN 12: English First Peoples 12
English First Peoples 12 builds upon and extends students' previous learning experiences in English Language Arts 10 and 11 courses. The course is grounded in the First Peoples Principles of Learning. It is designed for all students, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, who are interested in delving deeply into First Peoples oral and written literature and visual texts in a range of media. The course focuses on the experiences, values and beliefs, and lived realities of First Peoples as evidenced in various forms of text, including oral story, poetry, song, performance, film, and prose. A key feature of the course is its focus on authentic First Peoples voices. This course may be taken in place of English Studies 12 to meet graduation requirements.
