29 Aug 2019 7:34 AM | Sam Mills (Administrator)

What will you learn this fall?

'Speaking Our Truth: A Journey of Reconciliation' by Monique Gray Smith. A compassionate look at the history and traumatic repercussions of colonization, as well as an inspirational primer for young and old who want to want to do good work towards reconciliation. Pitched at around a middle school age, it's a great resource for all ages. 

"In this book, we are embarking on a journey of reconciliation. This isn't a read-and-do-nothing kind of book. It is an active exploration of Canada's collective history, our present and our futures. It's about how we grow as individuals, families, communities and as a country." (page 12). Available at The Learnary

For more reading, we recommend Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. An important document to be familiar with. Http://

Also, check out Reconciliation through Education, a free online course aimed at educators of all sorts. This is detailed and informative course. Sam took it earlier this year, and will likely take it again. Highly recommended! Https://
