Aboriginal Resources to Support Personal and Social Core Competencies

The following Aboriginal resources may be useful when exploring Social Emotional Learning in the classroom. Over 60 picture books were recently shared with staff at Georges Vanier Elementary and we explored how these books might support the Core Competencies in B.C.’s new curriculum. Focus was on Personal Awareness and Responsibility and Social Responsibility.

This list reflects picture books we currently have in our collection or titles that will be added in September ’17. They were selected as authentic Indigenous sources or are titles held and shared by the District Aboriginal Department. It is not intended to be exhaustive but rather to provide a window into how Aboriginal titles may be used to reach school-wide SEL goals.

Each book has been placed within the context of a core competency with specific details outlining how that title might be utilized. Many books are listed in multiple sections. Titles are linked to webpages with further details. Aboriginal perspectives have also been outlined as well as a final section on further supportive digital resources on numerous titles.
