Stories of Anishinaabe Resilience (SOAR) Secondary Level Education Curriculum

Developed by Johanna Mousseau-Krahn, BEd

A new unit plan focusing on the local St. Joseph's Residential School has been developed as part of the Thunder Bay Public Library's Stories of Anishinaabe Resilience (SOAR) Project.

The St. Joseph’s Residential School unit is cross curricular, and each lesson incorporates curriculum expectations from different curriculum between grades 9 and 12, including the First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Studies curriculum (2019), the English curriculum (2007), the Canadian World Studies curriculum (2018), the Arts curriculum (2010), and other curriculum that might not be explicitly addressed in the lesson plans.

The St. Joseph's Residential School Unit Plan comes complete with a Teacher's Guide, Student Workbook and Consolidation Card as well as corresponding PowerPoint presentations. To access the curriculum package, contact Robyn Medicine, Community Hub Librarian - Indigenous Relationships Supervisor via email or phone 684-6812.
