Description
This is the 3rd lesson in an integrated project about killer whales and their cultural, spiritual and economic significance in British Columbia. Students are learning that whales are under threat, including the local populations. Using the elements and principles of design students will create an Orca image covered in at least 2 everyday household items, recyclable materials, or garbage. The intent is to connect art to real world experiences, issues, and current events.

Description
A lesson plan on propaganda maps geared towards 20th Century World History 12 (adaptable to Political Studies 12 or Social Studies 11). In the modern era, students are constantly surrounded by digital and non-digital forms of persuasion. This is not new: propaganda and persuasion have long been used to influence the perspectives of citizens. Maps are spatially malleable and subject to intentional distortion, for military, geopolitical, economic and/or other aims. These persuasion techniques emerge in modern media. Students are first exposed to a variety of persuasive maps, where they learn to identify and critically analyze the aims and audiences of these maps. Then students are divided into groups that act as public relations companies who have been contracted to make a map that persuades U.K. audiences to vote to either leave or remain in the E.U. This activity increases understanding of how persuasive tools are used and how citizens must be critical consumers of information.

Description
These two lessons help students to reflect on their understanding of social responsibility, social service and social justice and to delve deeper through a jigsaw activity into the differences between these three approaches. Through these lessons, students develop the necessary understanding to critically analyze actions they may take to assess whether they will have an immediate or systemic impact on the underlying issue.

Description
The past years have seen large numbers of refugees moving to Europe. This, and the rise of populist movements in Europe and North America, has led unions to develop activities engaging schools, local communities, authorities, etc. to promote the rights of migrants and build inclusive schools and communities. With the support of Education International (EI), exchange visits, information sharing and peer-learning activities allowed education unions to inspire each other and explore synergies across borders. This toolkit aims to build on these experiences and facilitate education unions to develop their work in this area. It also assists unions by exploring the issues around integrating migrants and refugees in education and sharing what others have been doing in this domain.
