Supporting Indigenous Reconciliation Resources Through Inquiry
This 14 day Inquiry Unit follows the BCTLA’s Points of Inquiry which is based on Barbara Stripling's Inquiry Process. There are five aspects to this inquiry:
Connect-and-Wonder, Investigate, Construct, Express, and Reflect (at all stages).
With the examination of eight children's reconciliation picture books and novel excerpts, and lessons to support the understanding of the Rights of the Child, students will be able to investigate, construct and express their findings on the question: "How did the Canadian Government's residential school system violate the Rights of the Child"
Included in this inquiry unit are step-by-step lesson instructions, editable activity sheets, charts, graphic organizers, planning and reflection booklets.
Students from grade 4-6 will have success with this inquiry approach to understanding Truth and Reconciliation.
The inquiry learning process mirrors many aspects of the First Peoples Principles of Learning as it meets learners at their level and encourages collaboration for the success of the community.
