ELA B10 Equality – Do we have a fair and equal society?

Inequalities in Society

Consider how people are treated around you when they’re considered by some to be different. There are a lot of examples in the world recently where the idea of “other” is growing and racial division is causing more severe treatments of people, even in Canada.

This section looks at that treatment, through literature examples to help you understand what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes.

      • YouTube Video: Race for $100



  • Viewing a Public Speaker (video below) – Ellen Page (observe her body language, eye contact, and gestures while she speaks. What impression to you get of how comfortable she is speaking?)

    • Ellen Page Video: Toxic Feeling of Holding Identity In (Video below)

  • Film School Ties

  • If you didn’t get to watch it in class, talk to me about getting a copy of the film to watch.
