My Voice Our Rights

NOW AVAILABLE - My Voice – Our Rights, a national opportunity for students to write lyrics and poems about human rights. To help teachers support their students in this project, the Canadian Teachers’ Federation (CTF) has developed K-12 lesson plans to introduce the concept of Rights and Articles of the UN Declaration, and to stimulate students’ creativity in the writing of lyric and poems.

Teachers are encouraged to have students submit music videos or spoken word videos. The videos will be showcased not only on Imagineaction’s website, they will also grace the 2014 CTF’s President’s Forum on Equity and Social Justice, in Winnipeg next July, as teacher organizations, educators and human rights activists from across the country gather. These creative productions aim to celebrate the voice of youth and to highlight the pivotal role that education plays in the promotion of human rights.

There are no project subsidies to support this initiative since we are looking to subsidize travel and expenses for five teachers, whose classrooms will submit My Voice-Our Rights videos, to participate in our July CTF President’s Forum on Equity and Social Justice.

Submit your students’ final video production before April 1, 2014.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Sandra or Pauline or visit the website.
