Disability Rights Lesson Plans
The Rick Hansen School Program resources are a complete set of resources designed by educators, for educators
to support them in teaching students about disability, accessibility and inclusion, thus empowering youth to become difference makers in their schools and communities.
In response to the increasing number of requests for presentations on mental health, the BC Children's Hospital created a resource that can be used in high schools across
BC to spark dialogue and increase awareness about mental health.
and Challenging Ableism
This lesson provides an opportunity for students to understand what ableism is and the many ways it manifests, reflect on specific examples of ableism and categorize them, and consider ways they can be allies and take actions to confront and challenge
In this lesson, students will share what they already know about physical disabilities, stereotypes regarding people with disabilities and issues of fairness and accessibility. They will start learning vocabulary for talking about ableism.
What if diverse abilities were actually called DIVERSABILITIES instead of disabilities? In this topic, we will explore the power of language as it relates to ability, learning about the concept of ableism and celebrate the uniqueness of
how our bodies and minds function.
