Bring a Turtle Island Reads book into your classroom
Are you a teacher looking to incorporate more Indigenous literature into your curriculum? Read on!
CBC Montreal is launching a new project to highlight Indigenous Canadian storytelling and facilitate conversations about reconciliation in Quebec's English high schools. We are working in partnership with LEARN, the Quebec Writers' Federation, CODE and the Faculty of Education, McGill University.
This is part of our Turtle Island Reads initiative, which celebrates stories written by and about Indigenous Canadians.
We're looking for teachers interested in putting a novel or graphic novel by an Indigenous Canadian author on their class reading list for the 2018/2019 school year.
Interested teachers are asked to fill out the below survey.
Every school that responds will receive a book by an Indigenous author for their library plus a curriculum guide for that book.
In addition, we will select three classes in Secondary IV or V to work closely with us during the upcoming school year as Turtle Island Reads champions.
If your class is selected as a champion, you'll receive a set of books, a curriculum guide, a classroom visit from a Turtle Island Reads book advocate, and a special invitation to our live Turtle Island Reads book event in Montreal next Spring (date TBC)..
The deadline to reply is June 29, 2018.
