Abstract: The kit is designed for teachers of students in grades 6, 7 and 8 based on Ontario curriculum requirements. 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. The kit contains four lesson plans, written by a team of teachers, to address prejudice. 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. Each lesson is accompanied by fact sheets on specific incidents related to the goals of the lesson. The kit also contains a DVD with compelling messages about the dangers of antisemitism and racism. It includes an introduction to FAST as well as four segments whose contents match each of the lessons in the kit. It was designed to be flexible so that lessons can be taught individually or as a unit. The materials can also be adapted for other grades.
Internal Notes: Includes DVD.
