Resource: Ruby’s Story

Some of the most common questions we hear relating to residential schools education are: Why should we teach children about the history of residential schools? And how do we teach children about residential schools in a classroom setting?

Ruby’s Story, written as a blog post by âpihtawikosisân discusses the experiences of a present day First Nations student in Grade 2 when she decided to focus on residential schools for a class assignment.

Ruby’s Story is an excellent example of why it is important to learn and talk openly about residential schools at all education levels.
