    PDF ↠ BOOK Sugar FallsFREE Þ DAVID ALEXANDER ROBERTSON Sugar FallsIt's still hard to believe that this actually happened here in Canada Stranger still is that nobody talks about it; my teachers to this day still skirt around the subject of children forced into these abusive institutions but the effects of residential schools can still be felt today especially since First Nations children now all grown up are testifying to the things they endured in life Sugar Falls is a simple graphic novel that really illustrates the impact of residential schools and also growing up alone making a complex and controversial topic simple for any reader to understand yet still getting a very important message across The characters are easy to connect with making the plight they face feel all the real It's a harrowing tale of abuse and mistreatment but also

    PDF ↠ BOOK Sugar FallsFREE Þ DAVID ALEXANDER ROBERTSON Sugar FallsThis is a heartbreaking story Residential schools did so much damage and the ripple effects continue to be felt This is a shameful chapter in US and Canadian history and far too few know about it This short graphic novel would be a good introduction to that history

    PDF ↠ BOOK Sugar FallsFREE Þ DAVID ALEXANDER ROBERTSON Sugar FallsSugar Falls is set up as a fictional narrative but is based on a real residential school experience It is short to the point and informativeThe story is relayed in a way that introduces the topic without shying away from the truth but also without getting too graphic It would be ideal for teenagers being introduced to the topic

    PDF ↠ BOOK Sugar FallsFREE Þ DAVID ALEXANDER ROBERTSON Sugar FallsA fictional framing seuence about a high school kid writing a report about the Canadian residential school system and its forced assimilation of indigenous children brackets the true story of Betty Ross an Elder of the Cross Lake First Nation in Manitoba Canada Ross is the victim of corporal punishment and sexual abuse at the hands of the school's nun and priestThe story captures her feelings of disorientation and fear uite well but assumes knowledge on the part of the reader as to why and how Ross is placed in this situation by the Canadian government I would have welcomed context in the story or in the end matter especially since this seems to be aimed at educating a younger audience

    PDF ↠ BOOK Sugar FallsFREE Þ DAVID ALEXANDER ROBERTSON Sugar FallsA really good way to introduce middle school kids to the subject of residential schools I brought this home to read for myself and then my grade six son saw that it was a graphic novel and asked to read it too He read it straight through and asked some uestions about the ending which I thought showed excellent engagement though possibly meant the story wasn’t as clear as the author intended it to be
