Great prep for the International Day for the Elimination of Racism on March 21. Lunch and facilitation guide included.

Activity includes:

  • Experiential learning on Indigenous cultures, Canadian colonial history and legacies, including residential schools. Participants will learn about TRC Calls to Action.
  • Three webinars through the Ministry of Education to provide:
    • Orientation session for teachers that will prepare them for the workshop and allow them to do pre-teaching with students, so they can observe their schools and identify issues of racism, discrimination, and oppression.(February 28, 2019 at 12-12:45 PM)
