“One of the most interesting resources for best practices in Aboriginal Education is PPW. Sponsored by the Martin Aboriginal Education Initiative (MAEI), this site provides access to a virtual library of resources related to K- 12 curriculum, research, multi-media, classroom practices and relevant policies.
Educators, researchers and others use the site to enhance and share learning opportunities and to improve educational success for Aboriginal students. The site also includes materials related to Early Childhood Education, Parent/Community Engagement and Issues. The site is updated monthly with new materials. By registering with them, you will receive these updates directly as they are posted. If interested in sharing practices and/or learning more about these initiatives, please visit their website at MAEI Promising Practices.
