Description
Never before has the practice and code of journalism come so profoundly under fire. From the 24-hour news cycle to the instantaneity of social media to the proliferation of fake news websites and presidential challenges, our media landscape has not only been transformed, but has also become incredibly challenging to understand. The Cinematheque examines recent case studies and provides a starter kit of tools for helping our students navigate news in the post-truth era.

Description
The PIR Live Event program engages classrooms across Canada in dynamic online webinars about a range of topics, introducing students to Canadian researchers, professionals, and facilities. Each PIR Live Event webinar features a Q&A with a different guest expert and/or a virtual tour of a research facility — and it’s FREE to participate! Classrooms across Canada can join the discussion by submitting their questions during the webinar and getting answers in real time from our guest expert. If you can’t participate at the scheduled time for a PIR Live Event, you can submit your questions in advance to liveevent@pirweb.org and watch the video recording afterward on the Partners In Research YouTube channel with your class to hear the answers! PIR Live Events are interactive, dynamic, and a great way to bring virtual experts and other classrooms into your classroom.

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.

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.

Description
Canadian Prime Ministers come to life! There are two series of videos being currently made by this YouTube Channel. The first is a long version of each PM (between 6-12 minutes each) which incorporates all different aspects of history, including indigenous issues, and ends with a critical thinking question. The materials go in depth into each Prime Minister and the issues in his time, including Indigenous history, international issues, and what life was like for people in this time. The second series is called 'Minister in a Minute' and sums up each Prime Minister in one minute. Retrospect aims to add more Canadian content to YouTube. Feedback welcome!!

Learning Standards
The Violence is Preventable (VIP) program is a comprehensive strategy for connecting schools, educators, students and families with Children Who Witness Abuse (CWWA) programs across the province to improve the health and welfare of children and youth impacted by violence. As provincial coordinator of this school-based prevention program, the BC Society of Transition Houses (BCSTH) supports VIP sites to accomplish the following program goals: • Break the silence of domestic violence by making it safe for children and youth to speak up in schools about their experiences? • Increase teacher, school staff, parent/caregiver, and student awareness about violence in relationships and its effects on child witnesses? • Empower participants to become personally involved in community social justice initiatives; • Motivate students and educators to recognize violence in their everyday lives; and • Facilitate partnerships between schools and communities in order to respond to the emotional, social, academic, and psychological needs of children and youth exposed to domestic violence.
Duration
Varies based on the needs of each school.
