A new resource for Manitoba teachers was unveiled Thursday to teach students about human rights in the classroom.

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights and the Canadian Teachers’ Federation have created an online toolkit, filled with more than 200 teacher-reviewed resources and tools focusing on human rights.

“These resources will fill gaps in human rights education and better equip teachers to prepare appropriate lessons to engage students and enrich their human rights learning experiences. Wherever teachers live and teach from coast to coast to coast, regardless of whether they are teaching early, middle or senior years, in English or French, access to the toolkit and the Museum is theirs,” said CMHR president and CEO Stuart Murray.

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 free educational resources are available to all K-12 teachers province-wide.
