A book written by Brie Phillips, UCN Alumna, Teacher, and Author, will soon be found on library shelves across Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
Phillips graduated from UCN’s Kenanow Bachelor of Education program in The Pas. Her book is aimed at students in the middle years (grades 5-8) and was written to represent Kenanow (Cree for “all of us”), and as an assignment in her UCN program.
“[It] eloquently and beautifully reminds the reader of importance of connections – connections to each other, connections to our ancestors, and our connections to the land.” said Ann Barbour‐Stevenson, the UCN Kenanow faculty member who assigned the book project.
A summer (and virtual) campaign at Universite de Saint-Boniface is available for learners to explore French from a distance.
Rolling out through July, the program offers nine different levels of theme-based, interactive classes. The sessions cover vocabulary, sentence structure, and pronunciation, communication strategies, and Francophone culture.
Registration takes place online.
