This kit is for those who are fluent in the language to use to teach loved ones. This language learning kit was created in collaboration with Anishinaabemowin language teachers, Anishinaabe language learners, MICEC Staff and a curriculum writer. We wanted to create a functional take-home resource for language teachers and students that is accessible for both online and in-person learning, in the home, community and in the classroom.

Teachers Kit Overview

The overview serves as a starting point for using this kit. It contains an explanation about who this kit is intended for as well as an overview of the materials included, a statement about MICEC's immersion philosophy, and a list of further resources.

This kit for language teachers includes instructions for activities and a link to MICEC's Quizlet page where you can access and use the pre-made vocabulary lists to test your students.
