The graphic novel A Second Chance: A Gladue Rights Story tells the story of Myra, an Indigenous woman who is charged with assault with a weapon. A Second Chance is about Gladue rights for Indigenous peoples.

The teacher’s guide to the graphic novel is a resource for high school teachers that:

  • provides background information about Gladue rights and explains their relationship to relevant learning intentions in BC’s curriculum,
  • guides educators in using the graphic novel to meet relevant learning intentions, and
  • guides educators in meeting learning intentions relevant to the topic of Gladue rights.

The guide provides ideas for teaching and learning about colonialism and reconciliation in courses for grades 10 to 12, within BC’s redesigned curriculum.
