In Achieving Indigenous Student Success, author Pamela Toulouse provides strategies, lessons, and hands-on activities that support both Indigenous and non-Indigenous learners in the secondary classroom. While the author’s primary focus is the needs of Indigenous students, this book is for all teachers of grades 9–12 who are looking for ways to infuse Indigenous world-views into their courses. Ideas include wise practices such as retention/transition/graduation planning, differentiated instruction, assessment, and equity instruction. Using appropriate themes for curricular connections, the author presents a culturally relevant and holistic approach that helps to build bridges between cultures and fosters self-esteem in all students.
