Culturally Inclusive Content

  • Chapter One is co-creating original children's e-books with the communities we serve, focused on advancing First Nations priorities, perspectives, and world views.
  • Written and illustrated by Indigenous artists, these original storybooks explore priority themes identified by the communities, helping to fill a significant gap in conventional curriculum and available resources for emerging readers.
  • To support language revitalization, the storybooks include audio clips of elders pronouncing Indigenous words incorporated into each story. That way, students, ELIs, and families can explore the first languages of the communities together.
