Successful Practices: Showcasing Strategies that Work

Share Your Proven Strategies with Others

Successful Practices include documented research, frameworks, models, and educational strategies that have worked to enhance kindergarten to grade 12 student success. Indspire evaluates and shares these proven practices here, for the benefit of Indigenous education stakeholders nationwide.



Practices are evaluated using seven principles created by consultation with national Indigenous scholars. The principles honour Indigenous ways of knowing and values. Educators, parents, school boards, and others will find the Successful Practices a valuable resource for sharing proven educational strategies to help Indigenous students succeed.

Specific criteria must be met before Indspire will evaluate a practice.
