"As part of my professional training, I participated with my
whole school staff in the "Blanket Exercise" (grade 7 lesson)
facilitated by the board consultant for Indigenous Studies. As we
gained knowledge of the diminishing land rights of Indigenous
peoples, teachers were visibly moved by the scope of colonization
that has taken place.

Truth and Reconciliation in Canadian Schools is highly recommended for the professional teaching resource collections of school libraries and school board resource libraries, and as a teaching resource for teachers of all subject areas, from K-12. Purchase more than one copy for your school library and find ways to promote it to teachers in your school.Highly Recommended.- Joanne Peters, Canadian Review of Materials
Every educator in Canada needs to know what is in this book. In our national and global call to truth and reconciliation action, Toulouse has written an essential resource to teaching and learning about Indigenous history, knowledge, culture, and contributions. Her text moves "beyond acknowledgements and apologies" to restorative education about, and with, Indigenous peoples. In well-organized, clear language, Toulouse maps, scaffolds, and guides important First Nations concepts and methods for meaningful teaching and learning.
