Gender-Based Violence Teacher Toolkit

The Gender-Based Violence Teaching Network emerged from the Time to Teach About Gender-Based Violence in Canada research project, led by Dr. Catherine Vanner (University of Windsor) and Dr. Claudia Mitchell (McGill University).

The project aims to support secondary school teachers and students in Canada to teach and learn about gender-based violence (GBV) issues when using provincial curricula. The full website is one of the products emerging from the research project; it responds to calls from teachers for a space that brings together teachers interested in teaching about GBV issues with each other and with relevant resources.

The teaching toolkit and accompanying resources have been developed specifically to support teachers in Grade 8-12 classrooms in Ontario, Canada, corresponding to the curriculum expectations for Health and Physical Education, Social Sciences, and English courses in Ontario, but it can be adapted by educators working in any context. It builds on the recommendations emerging from the research and the wider literature and has been tested in a workshop with 25 Ontario educators.

The teaching toolkit can be found at this link.
