Facing History and Ourselves Digital Asset Expansion

Description

At a time when incidents of racism and bigotry are framing national discussions in Canada, educators from across the country are seeking ways to address this along with priorities like the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's calls to action. To empower educators to connect the history of the Indian Residential Schools to today's conversations, Facing History will develop a five-week online course based on the educator resource Stolen Lives: The Indigenous Peoples of Canada and Indian Residential Schools and pilot the training with 60 teachers. To accompany this course, Facing History will publish a digital version of Stolen Lives. It will include interactive resources related to lesson planning, teaching strategies, primary source materials and an accompanying series of video resources.
