Choose Your Voice: Antisemitism in Canada

Educational Program for grades 6, 7 and 8 students:
- DVD in 4 segments (Duration: 22 minutes)
- Teacher’s Guide with 4 lesson plans or activities; DVD Discussion Guide
- Provincial Curriculum Connections

The Choose Your Voice resource kit was originally designed for teachers of students in Grades 6, 7 and 8 based on provincial curriculum requirements. It is also adaptable for high school students, ESL and gifted learners.

The kit gives teachers tools to help their students learn about the dangers of hatred and stereotypes, and find their voices to combat them. It encourages students not to be bystanders or perpetrators but heroes, by speaking out.

It meets curriculum requirements for many different subjects:
Language Arts – English, French, Writing
Social Sciences – History, World Issues
Religion
Physical Education – Health Unit
Arts – Drama, Music, Visual Art and Dance

It is also used in programs for Safe Schools, Character Education, Anti-bullying and Holocaust Education. It was designed to be flexible so that lessons can be taught individually or as a unit.

The kit contains four lesson plans, written by a team of teachers and curriculum experts. Each lesson contributes to a better understanding of the ways in which we construct stereotypes and the ways in which prejudice and misunderstanding have contributed to our past and our present in Canada.

Fact sheets on specific incidents can be used for research and relate to the goals of the lesson. Many different racial minorities are profiled. The kit also contains an award-winning DVD with compelling messages about the dangers of antisemitism and racism.

Our new English kit includes a free poster (20” wide by 30” deep) for classrooms, libraries and hallways. Download the FAST poster in PDF format (206 Kb).
