Resources To Start Off Your Week 44: First Nations Resources Cont.

     If you happened to catch my quick post yesterday you know that I am now back at university attending the same classes I did before my student teaching pracitcum began. I am currently working on a few assignments for classes as well as putting together some reflective posts on my time at "S-School". In the mean time, I wanted to share a great resource that I learned about today in my Aboriginal Studies class. As always, I will be adding this to my ever growing list of resources under the Fav Websites heading.

1 ) Speaking My Truth: Reflections on Reconciliation & Residential Schools
- "How did we get to where we are now? Until we understand that, our future
   together as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples looks uncertain at best."
   Speaking My Truth is a collection of essays that, as the title suggests, speaks
   about Residential Schools and reconciliation in Canada.
- This book is at an easy reading level and is available as a FREE download or
   e-book. You can even order FREE print copies for your classroom (I've
   ordered a full class set)!
- You could use these essays during a specific unit on residential schools or
   even as a way to incorporate every-day aboriginal perspective into your
   English class.

Happy Monday everyone!
