The history of Residential Schools in Canada was ignored for a long time. Fortunately, now we have a lot of information available, but it can be difficult to pick and choose where to start, and tricky to find appropriate material. This session will explore books about Residential Schools to share with students, and appropriate books to introduce the topic of Residential Schools in Canada with young readers. Additionally, teachers will gain more information to support their understanding and competency in updates to our Teaching Quality Standard, as teachers must demonstrate that they can apply “Foundational Knowledge about First Nations, Métis and Inuit". Learning objectives: Gain exposure to literature and resources on Residential Schools Understand more about history of Residential Schools in Canada Feature of authors Christy Jordan Fenton and Margaret Pokiak Fenton
