Example Lesson Plans

Diversity and Media Toolkit (Grades 7-12)
The Diversity and Media Toolbox explores issues relating to stereotyping, bias, and hate in media, including on the Internet. The program, which includes professional development tutorials, lesson plans, and interactive student modules and background articles, is divided into two distinct but complementary topic areas: media portrayals of diversity and online hate. The Toolkit is made up of two resources: That's Not Me and Facing Online Hate. That's Not Me addresses media representation of ethnic and visible minorities, religion, Aboriginal people, LGBTQ and persons with disabilities and includes lesson plans for grades 7-12. Facing Online Hate resources explore how the Internet is used to spread and incite hate – and the ways that citizens of all ages can respond to this issue. It includes activities for grades 8-12.
