In September students took a look at the recommendations made by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to the Gov’t of Canada.

The Task: Each student must use a piece of line paper, appropriate title with date, name, etc, and a proper title. Each student is to make a list of the top five or 10 truth and reconciliation recommendations that they feel the government should work on. for each item in the list the student must share a couple sentence is saying why this certain recommendation is so important to start with.
