By looking closely and compassionately at the ongoing effects of the Indian Act and the Residential School system, students will not only begin to understand the complexities of Indigenous and non-Indigenous relationships in Canada, but will be encouraged to envision what kinds of relationships, policies and systems would ensure equity for all children in the future.
This digital guide to teaching and learning about reconciliation was developed in collaboration with Grand Erie District School Board, Six Nations of the Grand River’s Education Department, and the Mississaugas of New Credit. It explores the causes and consequences of the residential school system in Canada. for grades 6-10.
Developed for grades 1-12 and available in French and English, these lessons are designed to nurture the student competencies required for historical thinking and inquiry. Each lesson introduces a thinking tool and a related historical thinking concept that can then be used to support curriculum-related learning activities and inquiry projects. The development of these lessons was made possible with generous funding from the Canada History Fund of the Government of Canada.
