Experience the story of Chanie Wenjack, the 12-year-old boy who perished fleeing from an Indian Residential School in order to find his way home. Teachers will learn how they may bring the music, animation and graphic novel produced by Gord Downie and Jeff Lemire, supported and endorsed by the Wenjack family, to their later intermediate and secondary classrooms as a means of teaching about residential schools and the important role of being an ally. Every Canadian should know Chanie Wenjack’s name and his story.
This is a BCTF workshop.
Target audience: 6-12
