Use the Learning Lens and Components in Context unit sections to introduce this component to your students and to discuss the difference between advocacy and activism. Then have students view the Toronto Activists video either in-class or online, instructing them to watch it purposefully for examples of advocacy and activism.
Taking the definitions of advocacy and activism presented in the Learning Lens, have your students further develop these definitions by visually depicting examples of advocacy and activism found in the film and their impacts on the lives of the people they see on the screen. They can do this by creating a mind map, illustrating written thoughts or developing an infographic.
