The selection of reading and viewing materials in the classroom needs to be culturally relevant and worldview affirming (Antone 2003). 2) lists the key strategies, based in the research literature, that encourage Aboriginal student success.

2 Checklist for reading (viewing) activities 2 Aboriginal books (and resources) refer to books and other resources with Aboriginal themes – ideas, messages, morals, or symbols that have Aboriginal connections – written (or created) by both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal writers and/or artists. The books and resources focus on the respectful presentation of Aboriginal people and do not include stereotypes or freeze-in-time situations. GoodMinds, located in Oshweken, Ontario, is a good source for levelled books with Aboriginal content.

Questions that teachers need to ask before selecting an Aboriginal resource are: • Does this resource honour the Aboriginal people of the land (for example, no stereotypes)? • Does this resource capture the diversity, uniqueness, and complexity of Aboriginal people? • Does this resource have an Aboriginal review process in place (edited by Aboriginal sources)? • Does this resource provide insight into the lives of Aboriginal people (for example, not frozen in one time period)? • Why am I using this resource, and how does this resource impact all of the learners in my classroom?
