Demo​: Weaving Aboriginal Content​​
​​This demonstration lesson was woven with math, literacy and formative assessment.  It was co-presented at the January 23, 2013 CST Meeting. It's intent was to show h​​ow an Aboriginal artifact or realia item could be used to weave Aboriginal culture into other subject areas, and how to use the AFL strategies in our lesson plans.
