This share site is a resource for educators in providing the foundation for creating a balanced, inclusive learning environment to promote First Nations, Métis, and Inuit student success.  Dr. Jennifer Katz's Three-Block Model of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is utilized as a framework to establish physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual inclusion.  The Three-Block Model of Universal Design for Learning supports the following goal for First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students:  


    


Physical - Use culturally authentic, valid and approved resources that accurately reflect and demonstrate the strength and diversity of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit.
 Mental - Foster authentic learning opportunities for all students to be engaged in First Nations, Métis, and Inuit education that bridge culture and curriculum.
Emotional - Foster safe and respectful classroom learning environments where First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students feel welcomed, supports and positively represented in the general school culture.
Spiritual - Embrace individual narratives that support cultural literacies across the curriculum from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit worldviews and ways of knowing.
