Missing children and the existence of unmarked burial sites at residential schools across Canada have been well-known for decades among Indigenous communities. However, Canadians are still grappling with the truths about residential schools, spurring long-overdue conversations inside and outside the classroom.
Remembering the Children, the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation’s publication for students, offers a way to begin those conversations. It takes readers to a variety of residential schools across time and space, opening a door into a past that reverberates today, while also celebrating the resilience and resurgence of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples’ culture.
To guide teachers in their own learning and to help bring truth and reconciliation into their classrooms, this publication will be accompanied by supplementary educational resources available in English and French. The magazine, intended for students in grades 5–12, is offered in print and digital formats in both English and French.
Order now to reserve your copies for Truth and Reconciliation Week, September 26 to 30. There are 50 copies per box and orders are limited to a maximum of 300 copies. As a complement, you’ll have access to a free digital educator’s guide which will be made available in early September. Unfortunately, single print copies are not available, however, homeschoolers and others are welcome to register for the digital versions and accompanying resources.
