Income disparity within and among school districts in Canada makes it difficult to fulfill public education’s promise of equitable schooling experiences for all students.  As educators, we must examine, carefully and critically, the impacts of socioeconomic status and social class on and for parents and children in the day-to-day processes and expectations of schooling.

Students and teachers bring to the classroom experience various cultures, races, identities, orientations, genders, socio-economic classes, religious or spiritual affiliations, abilities, language backgrounds, etc., and it is our job as teachers to teach all of our students to the best of our ability, not just the kids who look like us, talk like us, pray like us, or come from the same communities that we do.

This book discusses the ways that some students may experience school, with a focus on how some schooling practices rest on assumptions being made about students’ financial abilities to engage fully. Simply put, many students do not have the financial ability to fully participate in some school activities, ranging from not having internet and computer access to complete homework assignments, to food insecurity at home, to lack of access to “material or cultural goods” that often form the basis of classroom practices. We offer some analysis of how these factors may impact students’ experiences in schools.

Cànan tro Òrain is an open online Scottish Gaelic language educational resource for instructors. It is a compilation of language and culture lesson plans based on Gaelic song from a group of instructors. Teachers are encouraged to use these lessons and adapt them to their individual needs.

Cànan tro Òrain has a diverse array of lesson plans organized around Gaelic songs, some based on Canadian compositions and others on songs brought over from Scotland. Instructors may consult our finding guide to assess which lessons best support their teaching needs. Whether one is delivering a lesson to a group of beginners or advanced learners, to children or to adults, or if there is an interest in delivering a lesson inclusive of grammar instruction or Gaelic cultural elements, we anticipate there is a lesson to suit their needs.

The text within these chapters has been augmented with links for easy access to glossary terms, audio, video, worksheets, external websites, and other materials that will be helpful to successfully deliver lessons.
