Description
Choose Your Voice comprised of 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.

Description
Student Vote lets students experience the voting process themselves and build the habits of active and engaged citizenship. Students learn about government and the electoral process, as well as the current election issues, parties and candidates through classroom learning, campaign activities, media consumption and family dialogue. On Student Vote Day, students act as election officials and co-ordinate a vote for the election candidates running in their school’s electoral district. Teachers can register online to receive activity guides, campaign posters, electoral district maps, ballots and ballot boxes.
