Diversity and Media Toolbox - from Media Awareness

A comprehensive suite of resources for teachers, students and others

The "Diversity and Media Toolbox" is a comprehensive suite of resources for teachers, students, law enforcement representatives and the general public, that explores issues relating to stereotyping, bias and hate in mainstream media and on the Internet and is available in English and French.

The program, which includes professional development tutorials, lesson plans, interactive student modules and background articles, is divided into two distinct but complementary topic areas: media portrayals of diversity and online hate. These materials align with English Language Arts, Social Studies, Media Studies, Law, and Health curricula, as well as Anti-Racism and Conflict Resolution programs.
