Standing Bear – Makings Tracks with Zhahwun Shognosh

November 16, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Join the Standing Bear team on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, at 3:30 p.m., to learn more about a reach ahead program that Zhahwun Shognosh delivered using the Standing Bear program.

Zhahwun will be sharing information on the planning stages of the month-long accredited summer school course that she delivered using the Standing Bear Youth Leadership Program outline. In this course, grade eight graduates received a high school credit and the course helped with their transition to high school.

Zhahwun Shognosh is Anishnaabe from Walpole Island First Nation.  She is currently the Indigenous Studies Consultant for the Lambton Kent District School Board secondary schools.  Prior to this position, she was a teacher at Wallaceburg District Secondary School for twelve years.  She has been running Standing Bear programs with her students for the past few years and has just recently created a summer reach ahead credit for grade 8 students to help transition into high school.

Educators, youth groups, and summer camps are invited to register for this workshop by emailing the Standing Bear team at standingbear@iswo.ca.
