Teachers can access a human rights online toolkit for their classrooms
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) and the Canadian Teachers’ Federation (CTF) developed a Canadian Human Rights Toolkit, a central hub of educational resources available at no charge to all K-12 teachers. The organizations collaborated to research educators’ needs in terms of human rights education, and responded to these needs by assembling an online database with more than 200 teacher-reviewed resources and tools focusing on human rights.
Teachers can search the toolkit for resources including teachers’ guides, manuals, study guides, handbooks and more, filtered by province, language, grade level and subject area. The toolkit is an evolving database of Canadian and international resources, and grows with the help of user-contributed content to provide teachers with unparalleled access to new ideas and innovative practices being used by teachers all across the country.
The Canadian Human Rights Toolkit is available on the Museum’s website at humanrights.ca/learn and on the CTF’s Imagineaction website at www.imagine-action.ca/hr-dp.
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is the first museum in the world solely dedicated to the evolution, celebration and future of human rights. It is the first national museum in Canada to be built outside the National Capital Region. Using immersive multi-media technology and other innovative approaches, the Museum creates inspiring encounters with human rights as part of a visitor experience unlike any other.
