Remains of over 200 school children were found on the site of a former residential school in B.C. The story of Canada’s residential schools is tragic and repulsive. It is un-Canadian. It is the opposite of Canadian values and all we stand for and it needs to be told.
In this Planet French Booksmarts video and in course, “Les peuples autochtones du Canada”, our team meets Dr. Elizabeth Fast. Dr. Fast, PhD, is member of the Metis Nation from St. Boniface in Manitoba. She is an esteemed university professor who teaches sociology. In this video, she explains residential schools to children in easy French.
Activities are supplied on page 34 of the downloadable blackline master activity set of the Planet French Booksmarts course, “Les peuples autochtones du Canada”.
There is a chapter dedicated to residential schools in the course’s eBook/flipBook and there is an accompanying video where Guy Kelada reads the chapter with a follow-me cursor highlighting the text (with adjustable reading speed).
