Canada’s National History Society was honoured to present the 14th Canada’s History Forum and to bring together educators, Indigenous leaders, researchers, and community members for a conversation about truth and reconciliation. Featuring award-winning educators and researchers from across Canada, this event highlighted community-based projects that exemplify meaningful and tangible acts of reconciliation.

This presentation by Jacqueline Cleave was part of the 14th Canada's History Forum, “Called to Act: Truth, Reconciliation, and Collaboration,” on June 4, 2022.

Elementary teacher Governor General's History Awards Winner Jacqueline Cleave led a project to make the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s ninety-four calls to action more accessible to younger learners. Working together over a two-year period, students in three classes explored the calls to action, researched the issues they address, and then rewrote them in child-friendly language.
