Beyond Residential Schools: Talking About the Sixties Scoop in the Classroom


Course description

With the publication of the Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 2015, teachers, public servants and many others realized the need to teach and learn the truth surrounding Residential Schools. Publications and other forms of dissemination such as representations through the arts, literature, music, open courses (MOOC), and other educational initiatives have expanded our knowledge of this period in our history. However, after 7 years, we have yet to learn and teach about the 60’s Scoop, when Indigenous children were taken away from their families as a result of racist practices.

This workshop will introduce participants to this time in history where they will learn about the intergenerational effects of these practices, and approaches to support learners. Participants will also be introduced to resources and activities for the K-12 classrooms.

Learning objectives

  • Learn about the 60’s Scoop, including intergenerational effect on learners
  • Identify resources to teach about this topic
  • Identify sensitive pedagogical approaches to teach about this subject

Through various activities, participants will be invited to reflect on the implications for their personal practices.
