Fundamental English Curriculum
This Fundamental English curriculum was designed to address gaps identified during the research stage of the NVIT Indigenization Initiative. This curriculum is rooted in Aboriginal values, concepts of balance, and is developed in and for the Aboriginal communities. This Indigenized curriculum is for classroom delivery, self-directed learning, and online or any combination relevant to the learners in their particular community. This curriculum focuses on the immersion of the Adult Literacy Fundamental English (ALFE) into Aboriginal cultures, ways of knowing, and ways of relating to others and knowledge. This process will integrate culture into mainstream curriculum so that Aboriginal people can make sense of new information, methods, and knowledge systems that are more familiar or natural to the learner. Teaching English, grammar, reading, and writing by using familiar experiences and authentic curriculum creates the unique possibility to build on learner knowledge, experiences, and allows each learner to begin these courses with the understanding that they too bring knowledge to the classroom; thereby, the learners increase their chances of success.
