Removal of Community-Lesson 2

The second lesson in the residential school, loss of identity unit is the The Removal of Community. This  lesson focuses on five distinct survivors’ stories about their experience with their parents decisions to send them to residential schools. Many of the decisions were based around the law, and had nothing to do with the actual desires of the parents. The 7/8 students, than took turns discussing the effects that the loss of community will have on the survivors identity. Each student than used their own identity web, to remove the pieces of identity that would be lost if they were forced to leave their community. Some of the things that would be lost was hobbies, community connection, and for the girls, their long hair would be cut.
