Highlights of Choose Your Voice
Choose Your Voice offers four action-packed units that comprehensively 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. Minority groups such as Jews, Muslims, Sikhs and First Nations are represented in the resource to offer students a wide range of perspectives and well-rounded education on the topics presented. Students are encouraged to speak up against all injustices and not be bystanders.
All resources are provided free of charge, and include:
- Award-winning videos with compelling messages about the dangers of antisemitism and racism
- Lesson plans with multiple activities
- Fact sheets, featuring incidents involving a range of racial minorities, support the goals of the lessons
