Anishinaabemowin Immersion

This language learning kit was created in collaboration with Pebaamibines (Dennis Jones), Waapishki Kiisis Ikwe (Mindy Meyers), the language learners they have been working with, and the MICEC Language Development Team.

The activity in this kit was inspired by the methods shared that Pebaamibines and Waapishki Kiisis Ikwe shared with us, Roger Roulette's workbook, Gidinwewin and lesson 14 in Patricia Ningewance's Grassroots Language Teaching book, Reclaiming Our Territory, Word by Word. The "Where are we Going?" Activity is designed to be a functional take-home resource for language teachers and students that is accessible for both online and in-person learning.

This kit is for intermediate teachers and learners of any age. Intermediate learners know basic Anishinaabemowin words and phrases and are learning to use the language in conversation. They are learning to understand and respond to fluent speakers without relying on English. They also benefit greatly from opportunities to engage and respond to each other, especially with the guidance of a first language speaker.
