An interactive, engaging workshop introducing humanities educators to a resource which takes a focused look at historical and contemporary incidents of hatred, discrimination and heroism. Voices into Action is an online, ERAC approved secondary school program with over 300 pages of primary and secondary sources, thought provoking lessons and over thirty original, short documentary videos with first person accounts of events like the Holocaust, Chinese Head Tax, Japanese Internment Camps, Komagata Maru and much more. The human rights of aboriginals, women, the LGBTQ community and people of all cultures within Canada (and internationally) is explored fully within this user-friendly resource. The workshop prepares educators to broach these difficult topics with their students to raise social consciousness and improve the school’s social climate. Join us to explore this incredibly useful online resource together!
