Teachers within this Edukit you will find a series of three lesson plans that examine the history, purpose, spirit, and intent of the development and operation of residential schools in Canada and their effects upon Aboriginal peoples. All of the lesson plans are developed to compliment the new social studies curriculum as developed by Alberta Education. The lessons allow students to research the various health and wellness issues associated with the residential school experience as well as examine how healing from those experiences is still continuing today.

Each lesson plan provides a Teacher Information background section on Aboriginal history and culture. Many lesson plans include downloadable worksheets that can be printed off or transferred to transparencies. The lesson plans are all developed to allow students to be interactive as possible in the learning process. The title of each lesson reflects the learning objective, making it easy for you to sort through and choose what information you would like to share with your students. A Resources section includes a list of books and materials that you may want to use to increase your own understanding, to supplement lesson concepts and materials or for students to follow up on their own. Many of the resources are approved by Alberta Education and where possible ISBN and order information is included.
