Righting Canada’s Wrongs : new series of books in the library

NEW to our library, the Righting Canada’s Wrongs series is a new hardcover book series that focuses on discrimination and justice in Canadian history.  Titles include Residential Schools, The Japanese Internment, and The Chinese Head Tax.  These books are based on events in Canadian history where governments “have acknowledged and apologized for racist actions and policies”. The books are written at a grade 4 – 6 reading level but will interest students in older grades as well – likely, even parents!   They combine historical information with documents, photos, and first-person accounts which make them very engaging.

The publisher has a fantastic website where you can check out the titles available, watch videos related to each book, and download a free user guide pdf!  http://www.lorimer.ca/rightingcanadaswrongs/rcwhome.html
