Wednesday Online Class: Raven Flies South & Characterization

Hi everyone in English 9, here is the plan for tomorrow’s online class- I hope you’ve got your orange shirt on, it is important that we don’t forget the negative impact of Residential Schools on our Indigenous population and the intergenerational trauma still being experienced today (hint Raven’s mom).  We are allies together to create an inclusive and better Canada for you and your descendents!
