"This guide and interactive map could be used as a standalone unit for Black History Month. It could also provide a valuable local perspective for teachers using the novel To Kill A Mockingbird, as one example. As well, this project will be very relevant within a unit or theme of multiculturalism and anti-racism."
The BlackStrathcona project offers students a window into the social history and geography of the Black community in Strathcona.

Animals are vulnerable beings in that they are subjected to situations beyond their control. Using animals as a bridge to discuss social justice issues can be a way to ease students into more sensitive and personal social justice issues such as racism and stereotyping.
Included in this package are some outlined activities and discussion questions that should get the conversation started. These are designed to encourage students to think critically about where their beliefs and ideas come from and help them in their future discussions about issues involving people in society, as well as give them a chance to reflect on their own views on animals.
