Lost Property This EFL lesson is designed around a beautiful short film titled Lost Property by Asa Lucander. Students do a dictation, work out meanings of the verb ‘lose’, speak about lost items, watch a trailer and short film, and write a story. I would ask all teachers who use Film English to consider buying my book Film in Action as the royalties which I receive from sales help to keep the website completely free. Sex Ed That Turns Boys into Men — Bright Each 90-minute session at WiseGuyz opens with what Spence calls “check-in,” which is a chance for the boys to talk about themselves and what’s going on. Check-in, said Spence, “can take a long time. Some of them really take advantage of that time to talk about some of the issues or the struggles they’re having.” The safe space that Spence cultivates is crucial to the program’s success. Haberland offered the following criteria for productive sessions: “Answering difficult questions, making sure your classroom is a safe space for LGTBQ teens so that they don’t feel harassed or bullied, and ensuring that the curriculum feels relevant to their needs.”

Human Rights This is the preparation material for an English conversation lesson about human rights.

We are all equally entitled to our human rights without discrimination. Most Parents Support the New Sex Ed Curriculum - With Good Reason The uproar over Ontario's updated sexual education curriculum has now gone way over the top, with some parents pulling their kids out of school in protest. I respect the right of these parents to make their views known and to pull their kids out of school when sexual health curriculum is discussed in class. I oppose the attempt to axe the whole curriculum so that my child and the children of most Ontario parents, who support the curriculum, can't benefit from it either. The misinformation about the new curriculum rivals the inaccuracies kids get about sex from their friends and our culture. Some parents are convinced that their kids will be asked to touch themselves at school.
