Course Code: EFP12
English 11 or equivalent, assessment and/or instructor’s permission
English First Peoples (EFP) 12 satisfies the same graduation requirement as English Studies 12 but is grounded in Indigenous topics, themes, and texts. The Big Ideas underlying EFP 12 include understanding how:
- The exploration of text and story deepens our understanding of diverse, complex ideas about identity, others, and the world.
- Oral and other texts are socially, culturally, geographically, and historically constructed.
- Voice is powerful and evocative.
- First Peoples texts and stories provide insight into key aspects of Canada’s past, present, and future.
- Self-representation through authentic First Peoples text is a means to foster justice.
- First Peoples voices and texts play a role within the process of Recon.
This course involves exploring, understanding, and deepening knowledge of Indigenous issues and perspectives as students engage in language and literacy skills including writing, reading, analyzing, interpreting, and responding to texts.
