Teachers union launches e-book about residential schools

The book includes lesson plans, readings, background information

The B.C. Teachers’ Federation says it is launching an e-book to help teach students about the history and legacy of Indian Residential Schools.

The interactive book, titled Gladys We Never Knew: The life of a child in a B.C. Indian Residential School, includes lesson plans, readings, background information and projects.

It’s meant to help teachers and students examine the impacts of residential schools on First Nations communities, families and individuals.

It’s based on the short life and tragic death of Gladys Chapman, a child from the Spuzzum Nation, who died of tuberculosis at age 12 in Kamloops Indian Residential School.
