Judge Arnot, Chief Commission of the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission connected with Saskatoon Public School Division Treaty Catalyst Teachers, Thursday, June 1 as they learned more about reconciliation and shared their calls to action.
Judge Arnot reinforced with teachers the importance of teaching students the history of Canada from a culturally balanced perspective that is inclusive and reflective of Saskatchewan classrooms today. He shared with teachers the Concentus Citizenship Education Foundation resources and highlighted how these resources can support them in reinforcing the concepts of citizenship rights and respect. He reminded teachers that all Canadians have a responsibility to address the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action and that these citizenship resources, developed by teachers for teachers, are available to assist them in helping students Kindergarten to grade 12 to understand the legacy of residential schools. The Concentus Citizenship resources are explicitly connected to Treaty Education outcomes and support their work in the school division.
Working together we can create a culture of respect for all students, without exception. More information on these resources is available at the Concentus website, www.concentus.ca.
