Resource Book Bundle: Lessons from Turtle Island
This is a great resource for those who are just beginning to work with Aboriginal children and are concerned about teaching with authenticity. This resource very firmly guides educators through what is considered appropriate, and what isn't, from an Aboriginal perspective in the classroom. Therefore it could be easily taken the wrong way and I would recommend that while using this resource that you openly have conversation with your Aboriginal Education staff about what you're reading. Currently several of the Aboriginal titles are out of print but they are such well known books that they likely can be found in your DRC. -Terri


Create a curriculum that reflects and honors the diversity of all people," Lessons from Turtle Island "explores Native American issues in preschool and early primary education. The authors-one Native, one non-native-offer guidelines for learning experiences that move children beyond embedded stereotypes.

Resource Book Bundle: The First Nations Series for Young Readers Teacher Resource
This comprehensive teacher's guide is designed to accompany Second Story Press' First Nations Series for Young Readers. This resource has been developed around the First Nations/Native American holistic concept of community and how teachers can use these ideas to help support differentiated instruction. Just as the series tells the stories of First Nations activists who have taken action on issues that are important to them, the guide is designed to encourage students to use their critical thinking and literacy skills to do the same. It can easily be integrated into everyday junior level classroom programming for language skills, arts, social studies, and character education. It is also appropriate for adaptation in intermediate and senior level classrooms. The material can be applied to other books and texts that address local, national, or global social justice issues.

The guide uses the six books in the "First Nations Series for Young Readers":

Environmentalists from our First Nations
Great Musicians from our First Nations
Men of Courage from our First Nations
Great Women from our First Nations
Great Athletes from our First Nations
Gray Wolf's Search

The material in this guide can also be applied to other books and texts about First Nations peoples that address themes of social justice, activism, the environment, sports, and politics

Resource Book Bundle: Untold History
This bundle features the foundational text, Untold History, as well as 1 copy of each of the recommended student titles and the 2 recommended supporting resources, Grand Conversations and Reading Power. I highly recommend using this resource to begin your journey of learning about the Residential School system in Canada. -Terri

Untold History: Understanding the Impact of Indian Residential School on Canada's Aboriginal Peoples is a series of lessons created for students to develop an understanding of how residential schools impacted Aboriginal people across Canada. It is my hope that through these lessons, students will gain compassion and empathy for experiences faced by Aboriginal people in the past, and how these experiences continue to affect the Aboriginal community today.

By incorporating literature circles with the lessons found within this unit, the majority of learning outcomes for Grade 7 Language Arts will be met. As well, many of the learning outcomes for Social Studies are met. The recommended literature and corresponding lessons address the overreaching goal of the BC Social Studies curriculum which is to develop thoughtful, responsible, active citizens who are able to acquire the requisite information to consider multiple perspectives and to make reasoned judgments. Students will be able to critically reflect upon events and issues in order to examine the present, make connections with the past, and consider the future.

Synopsis: It is winter. The land lies still, quiet and stark beneath a blanket of snow. The tiny footprints of a mouse can be seen in the light of the moon.

"Wrapped in the quiet, and there in the bleak, there stood a wise mouse, preparing to speak."

The words that mouse chose were from many years past. She spoke them into the cold night air. So begins the enchanting story of a very special Winter Solstice celebration.

Kwakwaka’wakw author Terri Mack and Tsimshian artist Bill Helin have collaborated to bring us this story of strength, friendship and celebration. The lyrical text and engaging illustrations will appeal to readers of all ages.
