The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and the people of British Columbia held a Reconciliation Week in Vancouver during September (18-21) of 2013. Actually, this Reconciliation Week was occurring at the time of writing this section of the EDUC 100W course. This is such an important part of Canadian history—to pay respect and honour those who suffered in residential schools at the hand of the Canadian government, its churches and people.
This section further explores the concepts of curriculum and curriculum studies in Education by:
Developing an awareness of how European colonialism invoked the educational system as a means of “integration” in European society.
Developing an understanding of how aboriginal people around the globe have been broken by the residential school system, imposed through colonial governments and the churches.
Thinking deeply about the healing that needs to take place.
There are three required readings and three films for this week:
