Join us for the launch of the Neglected Voices Curriculum Pack.
The Tessellate Institute (TTI) produced a series of four short films in 2011 ( about Muslim youth who are at risk of being marginalized, representing different ethnic groups that face divergent challenges in Canadian society. These short “point of view” style films feature young Muslims explaining what it is like to be a Canadian growing up in a prevailing culture of Islamophobia and negative stereotypes.

TTI has now produced a curriculum pack for grades 7-12 to accompany these videos for use in classrooms. The curriculum pack includes both lesson plans as well as grading rubrics for teachers.

The launch event will include:

  • Film screening and talkback with film director Jawad Jafry and Fatima Ahmed
  • Curriculum overview with curriculum developer and educational consultant, Sultan Rana
  • Perspectives from a teacher and a researcher
  • Open forum for discussion and networking

This event is free and open to the public.

Organized by The Tessellate Institute with the support of the Olive Tree Foundation, ISNA School Board, the York Centre for Asian Research, and the Faculty of Education, York University.
