Feedback form isn't open yet.

Dr. Sean Lessard reflects on how earlier work alongside aboriginal youth in communities (Red Worn Runners) continues to shape his understandings of curriculum as a process that is fluid, transactional and filled with possibilities.  It is through the narrative experiences alongside the Red Worn Runners that Lessard continues to draw on both philosophically and pragmatically in his research that explores identity and curriculum making both in and outside of school places.  These places include communities across Canada where youth and families continue to guide this work.  Dr. Sean Lessard is from Montreal Lake Cree Nation Treaty 6 territory.  He is a former Edmonton Public School teacher, counsellor and consultant.  He is a published author, award-winning researcher and Associate Professor in the field of education and youth.
