Description
Bullets, Blood and Stones: the journey of a child soldier, brings students face to face with the child soldier situation that occurred in Uganda when infamous warlord, Joseph Kony, abducted 60,000 children and forced them to join his Lord’s Resistance Army. Teachers who have used this book in their classrooms note that student interest is high as the story is fast paced and the characters are very relatable. Real life events in the book provide a perfect teaching opportunity to contrast the lives of children in other parts of the world and challenge the way in which students view themselves and their place in society. Although events in the story are horrifying, there are moments of warmth and humour that are uplifting and give hope to the human condition. Teaching resources, including chapter by chapter discussion questions, activities, and a power point presentation, are available on the resource page of White’s website.

Right To Play - Play Your Part - 2 years ago
Description
Right To Play is a global organization that uses the transformative power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity. Through our work in over 20 countries, including in 88 of Canada's Indigenous communities, we have become an internationally recognized leader in the field of education and children's rights. In 2015, Right To Play partnered with Global Affairs Canada to develop the "Play Your Part" education initiative for Canadian elementary schools. Last year, we delivered this program in 215 Canadian schools in 7 provinces. The Play Your Part program provides students with an opportunity to explore topics of gender equality,global citizenship, and student leadership through an interactive, three-part program, lead by a Right to Play facilitator.
