Welcome to the Reconciliation Awareness LINC Lesson (RALL) packages for English language students from Literacy to Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) Level 8.
These materials are designed for the Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) English program and include tools for Portfolio-Based-Based Language Assessment (PBLA). However, as the materials are primarily content-based, they may be used by other publicly-funded organizations, programs or facilitators who want to provide an introduction to the rich diversity of the Indigenous peoples of these lands as well as the devastating historical events and injustices that continue to shape their current realities.
Indigenous voices are central in the RALL material, with all lesson content reviewed by Indigenous consultants for accuracy and authenticity. Participants in these lessons consider what reconciliation means and how to be part of positive change for the future of this country.
All lessons are based on the video called Welcome to Our Homelands, directed by Kamala Todd of Indigenous City Media, and its accompanying Study Guide, written by Kory Wilson. Materials include appropriate language for different CLB levels with visuals and handouts for all the activities.
The Teacher’s Guide below provides an overview of RALL content, as well as advice about terminology, sourcing appropriate supplementary lesson materials, and contacting local Indigenous Peoples or Nations to invite a visit, among other supports.
