Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Resources
Each week, we will be sharing books, articles, videos and podcasts to encourage continuing the work of anti-racism and equity, and to deepen our understanding of the history of Black, Indigenous, People of Colour and marginalized communities in Canada. Have a recommendation to share? Please let us know!
Residential Schools: Classroom Resources
View Resource Guides
The Indian Residential Schools and Reconciliation Teacher Resource Guides for grades 5, 10 and 11/12 were developed by the First Nations Education Steering Committee and the First Nations Schools Association. They are a response to the call by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada for education bodies to develop age-appropriate educational materials about residential schools. These unique, BC-specific, resources for grades 5, 10, 11 and 12 use age-appropriate literature, archival resources, and videos to increase students’ understanding of the historical context of residential schools and to develop students’ awareness about the reconciliation process as a way to move us all forward.
Project of the Heart: Educator Resources
First Nation Child and Family Caring Society
The First Nation Child and Family Caring Society have constructed lesson plans that assist educators that aim to teach about social justice issues. These four levels of guides include campaigns which FNCFCS promote and encourage all Canadians to create awareness and make a difference.
