'Dignity in a Myriad of Ways'
(click to read in context)

Reality shows more than one facet of an individual.

Within the confines of certain structures and systems, the right to privacy has been exploited and withheld by the powers that be for those in precarious situations within society.

A New Year of Mental Health

We've moved beyond the early days of self-isolation, worked through the pandemic and seen the final hours of 2020. We've depicted our experience along the way.

But we are seeing the slow effects of the pandemic on our mental health.

Through it all The Tyee has reminded us to pay attention to our bodies, learn from our senses, and keep our minds sharp through activities like drawing, gardening and listening to music, engaging with nature and importantly, being well at home.

Indigenous communities have reminded us to connect with the land, and resilient neighbourhoods have shown us the power of connection. Communities well-versed in isolation have found new tools for maintaining well-being.

We have seen people help others during the pandemic and asked ourselves what we can learn to live better after. Dive into a year of lived experience.

Schools Through the Pandemic

We've followed concerns of parents and teachers since schools were first shuttered and the initial return to classrooms.

Many have felt their needs are not being accommodated, and parent-teacher networks have arisen to follow outbreaks in schools. Parents have highlighted the difficulties of remote learning for their families, and some have faced tough choices about sending their kids back to school.

Educators have wondered how to adapt their teaching to a pandemic environment, from remote learning to self-directed education to the curriculum. Kids' long-term mental health is a growing concern.

Deep dive to learn more from parents, teachers, students and health and education experts.
