Secret Path Week is a national movement commemorating the legacies of Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack. It takes place annually from October 17th to 22nd. During this week, Canadians are encouraged to “Do Something” to further the conversation about the history and impact of Residential Schools in Canada.

As educators, this is a perfect time to start, or continue, the conversation in our classrooms. In this webinar, you’ll take on the role of a student as you learn how Secret Path digital resources can be used in your classroom. The session will also provide opportunities for discussing with the presenters and attendees how you can adapt these materials to a virtual, physical, or blended classroom.

The resources we will highlight in this webinar are geared towards high school students (grades 9-12), however, some activities, resources, and support materials discussed may be appropriate for middle school students as well.
