Blanket Exercise Simulation – History of Residential Schools and impact of colonization

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action #62 and #63 relate to “Education for Reconciliation”. The TRC text calls for: “Implementing…curriculum & learning resources on [the] history and legacy of residential schools…” and recommends a focus on “building student capacity for intercultural understanding, empathy, and mutual respect.” This experiential simulation exercise developed by KAIROS Canada will build empathy by providing a new perspective on the story of colonialism.
