Teacher Preparation

Teach For Canada’s Summer Enrichment Program

The Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) is the cornerstone of Teach For Canada’s community-focused preparation program. It is led by Indigenous leaders, northern teachers, and education experts. It helps teachers to learn about the histories and cultures of northern First Nations, to adopt culturally-relevant pedagogies, and to establish effective self-care practices.

 

The Teach For Canada 2020 cohort of teachers will join Indigenous leaders, northern teachers, and education experts online for a unique two-week Summer Enrichment Program this July. Teach For Canada will braid tradition, history, and pedagogy with technology to create an exciting and memorable virtual learning experience.

 

See the 2020 Summer Enrichment Program Agenda and Presenter Biographies for the 2020 Summer Enrichment Program for more details.
