CCLET Teaching Civil Liberties Description:
The Canadian Civil Liberties Education Trust is the education arm of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. CCLET’s Teaching Civil Liberties program facilitates free, interactive workshops that provide teachers and teacher candidates the tools to empower their students to think critically about and discuss issues for which there can be no perfect solution, and to actively seek out views that differ from their own.
- We will review the “reasonable limits” of the Charter and review case studies that will help teacher candidates foster respectful discussion on controversial issues in and out of the classroom.
At the end of the session, I can
- I can explain how the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms provides a protection for fundamental rights and freedoms in Canada.
- I have a deeper understanding of some of the rights and freedoms found in the Charter and the values that underlie them.
- I understand why the rights and freedoms protected by the Charter are necessary for the functioning of a free and democratic society.
- I can explain how the Charter applies in the public education system and reflect on the many ways teachers/schools can have a positive and negative impact on students’ rights and freedoms on a regular basis.
