Across the country, educators are incorporating Indigenous histories, cultures, and perspectives in their teaching. They are calling upon themselves and their students to learn about the land on which they reside. They are answering questions about missing children and unmarked graves. They are empowering students to take meaningful actions towards reconciliation.
The publication Truth and Reconciliation Week 2021 and this complementary educator’s guide are designed to support educators in both their own learning and teaching. The resources in this guide are intended to offer teachers what they need at the moment and in the moment, whether that be a place to start or a space to reflect.
This compilation begins and ends with a conversation, introducing some of the key questions that educators across the country are thinking about. In this package, you will also find suggested approaches and directions you can take to facilitate learning beyond a single week.
Our heartfelt gratitude goes to the leaders and learners who have shared their perspectives, experiences, and knowledge for this project.
