Voices into Action or Parlez et Aggisez — Free, online humanities resource
Equipping today’s youth with knowledge about human rights’ topics like racism, genocide, hatred and wars (both past and present) can potentially combat indifference and abolish the cycle of intolerance still prevalent in our world today. Voices into Action or Parlez et Aggisez provides a wealth of information, ERAC-approved original videos (with first person testimonials) and thought provoking activities for secondary students.

The curriculum-based program is free of charge, entirely online, mobile-ready and extremely teacher-friendly. Developed by curriculum experts at OISE-UT, the program maximizes digital technology to provide a comprehensive resource for students. When teachers register they can then access their Teacher Dashboard where they gain valuable teaching tools: lesson plans, rubrics and customizable handouts (with their own notes) which they can then label and save and attain a code to share with students (who can then access the lesson from any device). Our aim is to raise social consciousness through targeted education and we welcome you to make use of our resource.
