-Excerpt from the poem "I lost my talk" by poet Rita Joe
This project will require students to create a photo-essay examining the legacy of Residential Schools in Canadian history. This project will have powerful photos and brief text that will explain the history of these institutions without using much text. At the end, the students will present their final work to the class. Below is the PDF and Word copies of the lesson plan. Feel free to edit the Word file as you see fit.
