L’outil Parler vrai au pouvoir Canada comprendra des plans de leçon sur 11 défenseuses et défenseurs canadiens actifs sur la scène nationale et une autre à l’international. L’objectif commun est de faciliter la tâche de faire découvrir les droits de la personne aux élèves et de les amener à se voir eux-mêmes comme des défenseurs et défenseuses des droits de la personne afin qu’ils se prononcent dans les dossiers importants à l’échelle de leur communauté.
Speak Truth to Power Canada includes lesson plans on 11 Canadian defenders working domestically and one working internationally. The goal is to facilitate the teacher’s task of informing and enabling students to self-identify locally as human rights defenders on issues of importance in their very own communities.
The Indian Residential Schools and Reconciliation Teacher Resource Guides for grades 5, 10 and 11/12 were developed by the First Nations Education Steering Committee and the First Nations Schools Association. They are a response to the call by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada for education bodies to develop age-appropriate educational materials about Indian Residential Schools.
This project is an innovative educational tool kit designed to engage students in a deeper exploration of indigenous traditions in Canada and the history of Indian residential schools. It is a journey for understanding through the heart and spirit as well as facts and dates.
The strategy includes initiatives that support learning and achievement for Aboriginal students. It also raises awareness about First Nation, Métis and Inuit cultures, histories and perspectives in classrooms across Ontario.
