This fall, the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights (JHC) released the Paint the Rails (PTR) Legacy Book and corresponding Teacher Resource. PTR was a collaboration of local artists, Elders, and community organizations painting five public murals in Edmonton transit stations telling the histories of untold communities in the city and province. In this session, JHC will share concrete ideas on how to use this book and the teacher resource to engage upper elementary and junior high students in celebrating the stories of strength, resilience and settlement of eleven distinct communities within the Province of Alberta. Topics such as history, art, diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism are explored using timelines, calls to actions, lesson plans and many other downloadable in-class resources.
