Highlights of Choose Your Voice
Choose Your Voice offers four action-packed units that explore prejudice, stereotypes, and historical oppression. Students will learn from a variety of media, lessons, activities and discussions, with opportunities to brainstorm, share and compare, participate in class discussions and create graphic organizers. In original five-minute documentary videos, narratives of historical events are described first-hand by survivors.
Written by teachers for teachers, the lessons that follow are easy to use, thought-provoking and powerful. First Nations, Muslims, Jews, and Sikhs are represented in the resources to offer students a wide range of perspectives and well-rounded education on the topics presented.
Choose Your Voice supports learning outcomes for grades 6, 7 and 8. View curriculum connections for each Canadian province and territory.
