As a resource to accompany the Alberta Reading Benchmarks (ARB) tool, Sharing the Journey with Adult Indigenous Learners – A Teaching Reading Strategies Guide by Patricia Pryce was developed for practitioners working with Aboriginal adult learners. The guide evolved through collaboration with experienced practitioners around Alberta who have a respectful awareness of Aboriginal teaching and learning principles.
The guide includes a summary of philosophies, principles, and general teaching/learning strategies that try to reflect Aboriginal perspectives to make the journey toward reading literacy more accessible and authentic.
Included in the guide are references to general teaching-reading strategies that correspond to specific ARB levels. It also includes recommended reading material and electronic sources and devices.
