Truth and Reconciliation in the Classroom Student Resource
Activity Guide Overview
The videos that are embedded below have activities and guiding questions found within the accompanying activity guide. The guide can be used as prompts for further inquiry or can be used as is. There are also links to fillable pdf documents broken down by each unit of learning.
The activities are based on these key understandings:
- Indigenous civilizations have always been here
- Indigenous civilizations are sophisticated and complex societies
- Everything is grounded in relationships and connection with the land
- Indigenous civilizations are diverse throughout this land.
Students will be exposed to Indigenous ways of knowing, doing and being by examining both past and present ways of life in order to deepen their appreciation of how these key aspects can enhance their own understanding of their relationship to Indigenous Peoples.
Indigenous languages will also be embedded to enhance learning and provide authentic, accurate information from direct sources (e.g., language speakers such as Oneida, Anishinaabe, Oji-Cree and Cree).
