Here is an opportunity to explore a Residential School Inquiry based on The Secret Path by Gord Downie and Jeff Lemire

This unit touches on the first Big Idea – the exploration of text and story deepens our understanding of diverse, complex ideas about identity, others and the world.  The driving question was how have residential schools impacted both aboriginal and non aboriginal peoples in Canada.

The outline provides a guide for students to explore and to celebrate aboriginal culture, there is an introduction to the impact of residential schools and they will interact with the book “The Secret Path”.  The outline will provide assessment options as well.
