Description
These steps document the journey which I undertook (and am still undertaking) to understand my emotional reactions and growth to the idea of decolonizing my thinking teaching, and classroom. Moving from ignorance to denial to communication, the steps are a reminder to me that I have come a long way in imbuing Indigenous content and ways of knowing in my French classroom, but I still have a long way to go.
