How to create an authentic understanding of Residential Schools for your Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Engaging students in conversation surrounding Residential Schools is challenging in ensuring that students receive the academic facts without losing the personal stories and understandings that are the tragedy of our history. Without the emotional connection and understanding, empathy and reconciliation will be an incredibly hard task. This session will help you explore ways to facilitate both an academic and personal understanding of this complex and heartbreaking time in our history. The resources that will be explored for you to use in your classrooms are two Canadian documentaries, a graphic novel, as well as music videos created by First Nations youth exploring their challenges in the world today moving forward towards reconciliation. All the resources are voices from the Indigenous community sharing their story in their voice. Tools and tips on how to effectively utilize these tools in your classroom (notetaking strategies from documentaries and a graphic novel, as well approaches to music lyrics as poetry, etc.) will be provided along with assignment ideas and assessment rubrics.
