Canada has long since been regarded as a peaceful country, without a history of racism or discrimination against certain groups. Canadians are generally perceived around the world as being kind, friendly and incredibly polite. But there is a much darker side of Canadian history that is often left out of the narrative, forgotten or even ignored. Canada isn't innocent of racism.

Students will develop their understanding of the following: -Canada's history of racial inequality -Canada's geography and history as relevant to each week's lesson -Government policies towards different groups of people within Canada -The continuation of racism and systemic problems in Canada throughout history and into the present -Writing in role and creative writing
Students will create their own journal entry/monologue in role, each week. They can choose which form of writing they would like to work on. The time spent on this assignment will differ from student to student, dependent on their own writing abilities and how in-depth they want to go with their written piece. As well, students will be encouraged to comment on one other student's written piece once posted, and respond to the discussion question posted each week.
2 files available upon enrollmentStudents will require materials to write their journal entries/monologues. They can use pen and paper and upload a photograph of their writing (please make sure their writing is legible and clear in the photo), or they can use a program like Google Docs or Word to write. They can also write directly on the classroom page in the form of a post.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.

Students will learn the facts without unnecessary details they may find disturbing, in respect for their age group and learning level.
