Fahmy

Journalist Mohamed Fahmy spent 438 days in an Egyptian prison—jailed for reporting the news for Al Jazeera—and was released in 2015 following massive international outcry. Imprisoned alongside members of ISIS and other groups, Fahmy witnessed firsthand how extremism spreads. He talks about the Middle East, free speech, and the ongoing struggle for universal human rights.

Mohamed Fahmy is an Egyptian-Canadian author and journalist, speaking on topics such as freedom of expression, human rights, corporate media responsibility, journalism in conflict zones, and extremism. Fahmy spent years reporting from the Middle East for CNN, BBC, The New York Times, and Foreign Policy, and covered the Iraq War for the LA Times (which formed the basis of his first book, Baghdad Bound). He served as a delegate for the Red Cross to protect the rights of political prisoners, the missing, and refugees in Beirut. He received a Peabody Award for his coverage of the Arab Spring, and co-authored the Egyptian Freedom Story: a photo documentary of the January Revolution of 2011. He also received the Tom Renner Investigative Reporting Award for the documentary Death in the Desert, which exposes the trafficking of Sub-Saharan Africans to Israel.

In 2013, he accepted the title of Al Jazeera English Bureau Chief in Cairo. There, he was arrested by Egyptian authorities, who falsely accused him of conspiring with a terrorist group and fabricating news to serve the group’s agenda. He was imprisoned in the Tora maximum security prison where he spent a month in solitary confinement and over 400 days living with members of the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda, and ISIS. After unprecedented outcry from international press freedom organizations and the diplomatic community—and with his attorney, Amal Clooney—he was finally pardoned of all charges and released in September of 2015.

While still in prison, Fahmy founded the Fahmy Foundation for Free Press: an NGO and non-profit dedicated to supporting journalists imprisoned worldwide. Upon his release, he appeared at the World Forum of Democracy in Strasbourg days after the Paris attacks and met with the Secretary General of the European Council. He received the Canadian Commission World Press Freedom Award, this year’s Freedom to Read award from the Writers’ Union of Canada, and a certificate from UNESCO during his incarceration. Today he teaches at UBC in the Centre for Applied Ethics. He lives with a spirit of acceptance after sustaining a permanent shoulder disability from an injury that was exacerbated in prison due to medical negligence. He is collaborating with Amnesty International on a charter to protect Canadian citizens imprisoned abroad, and is completing a memoir on his experiences. Tentatively titled The Marriott Cell, the book is set for a fall 2016 publication, and will be developed into a feature film by The Development Partnership.

 

 

Raj, Althia, photo Jean-Marc Carisse 2014 0827_9975 B

Althia Raj is The Huffington Post Canada’s Ottawa bureau chief. Prior to joining HuffPost in 2011, Althia worked as a national political reporter for Postmedia News. She has covered Parliament Hill on and off since 2006, writing for Sun Media and producing for CTV and for CBC Radio’s “The House.” Althia is a frequent contributor on CBC’s The National’s At Issue panel. She can also be seen and heard on CBC’s Power and Politics, CTV’s Question Period and various CPAC programs.
Althia will be talking about how the federal Liberals won the last election — the role the media played in the campaign, how things have changed and how the Liberals have best adapted to those changes.  She will also touch upon what’s happened since Nov. 4, 2015, with the new government and both opposition parties who are now engaged in leadership races which will probably be in higher gear by the time we meet in Vancouver.
She can be found on Twitter @althiaraj and on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/AlthiaRaj

Learning about Government and Parliamentary Democracy in British Columbia The Parliamentary Education Office provides a number of services, resources and materials for students and teachers that explore the development and operation of our form of government, parliamentary democracy:  The School Tour Program provides an opportunity through the tour of the Parliament Buildings to combine history and the development of our governance structure. We will review the operation and the services offered on the school tours and highlight the changes of which both new and experienced teachers should be aware.  We will review our learning resources available for students and teachers, including lesson plans developed by teachers and organized to meet the new curriculum goals, and programs developed to assist teachers meet their curriculum goals while providing an engaging learning experience for students. Examples include the Parliamentary Players Program in which actors play historical characters, the Speaker in the Schools program where the Speaker travels to schools around the province and our new Model Parliament program.  We will introduce our new website http://www.leg.bc.ca has been redeveloped to provide a more welcoming and accessible entry to the Legislative Assembly, the resources and programs offered and information regarding the Members of the Legislative Assembly, their legislative responsibilities and activities.  We will discuss and would like to explore with participating teachers new resources and services that could be offered, on-line and social media opportunities that may be of assistance, and seek input for our re-imagining of the Discover Your Legislature resource.   We would like an opportunity to explore with teachers new ways to promote interactions with the Parliamentary Players that introduce historical thinking concepts to align the program with the more of the core competencies of the new curriculum. Luba Lisun, and Adriana Ayers 408  
What’s Behind “Cyberbullying”? Online Violence, Social Justice, and the Law BC’s new curriculum stresses social responsibility, including “valuing diversity, defending human rights, advocating for others, and acting with a sense of ethics in interactions, including online.” Join West Coast LEAF to explore the social justice dimensions of online behaviour and youth rights and responsibilities on the internet under Canadian law. We will provide a critical overview of Canada’s current legal framework around criminal harassment, child pornography, and sharing intimate images without consent. Through participatory activities, we will then demonstrate how our workshops help students understand the law, connect the dots between online violence and power imbalances in our society, and identify strategies to shift the culture of violence online. We will also engage in group discussion to identify how teachers and school administrators can promote online safety and support students experiencing online discrimination or harassment. Alana Prochuk 412  
Masters for Teachers of History, History Department, Simon Fraser University Focus Group We are looking for discussion, input, and help into the design of a MA program for secondary teachers in the Department of History at Simon Fraser University.

WORKSHOP SESSION: B                 (1:15PM to 2:45PM)  
Workshop Title Description Presenter(s) Room  
A different way to teach: Inquiry based Social Justice Learning Framework In this workshop we will showcase our innovative Raise It Up educational framework.  Raise It Up is based on acknowledging the value and worth of our youth, and the importance of developing life affirming qualities such as self-esteem, personal responsibility, empathy and critical thinking. During our workshop, we will demonstrate to attendees, through a series of hands on activities and discussions, that Raise It Up can easily be integrated into the new inquiry based curriculum. Raise It Up uses thought-provoking and engaging activities created specifically for youth to build awareness about the root causes of violence and motivate young people to take action in making their communities safer for everyone.  Raise It Up supports teachers to foster connection and wonder in their students. It makes space for teachers to encourage students to reflect on their experiences and investigate how privilege and oppression play out in our communities. Most importantly, this educational framework will inspire students to express themselves in authentic ways and have opportunities to construct creative solutions to some of society’s most entrenched social issues. Teachers can look forward to lesson plans addressing media literacy, impacts of colonization on Indigenous peoples of Canada and issues related to sexism, racism and homophobia. Ariana Barer, and Dalya Israel 419  
Brexit and the EU: Implications for Canada This workshop gives a brief overview of what the European Union is, what it does, and its relevance for high school students learning about systems of governance and globalization. The subject of “Brexit” (the 2016 UK referendum result that will remove the UK from the EU) is the focus. The politics of Brexit – to include media coverage, campaign strategies, and the ramifications for the UK and the rest of Europe – are presented in an accessible format, with attention given to the implications of Brexit for Canadians. Valerie D’Erman 418  
Duty Honour and Izzat: The call to Flanders Fields. Multiple Dimensions of Izzat This workshop will provide teachers with a teachers’ resource package covering the untold story of the contributions of Indian soldiers in the First World War, and their shared history with Canada. The curator of Indus Media Foundation will provide detailed background knowledge covering the following areas:  The Call to War: Who Responded; Imperial Citizens or Slave soldiers; The Indian Army a Lynchpin of Victory; Canadian History and Heroes.  Active teachers teaching various subjects ranging from languages, Numeracy, Social Justice 12 to Social Studies and First Nations Studies will provide teachers with possibilities of how to use the resource within any context of curriculum and teaching pedagogy. Annie Ohana, and Steven Purewal 415  
Exploring International Humanitarian Law: A Red Cross Program A set of laws to prevent and reduce the suffering and devastation caused by war. Melanie Mattson 414  
Germany in the 21st Century. The Truth “Travel” to 21st Germany with your students and receive highly engaging lessons and activities. This workshop takes participants to Germany. Participants will learn the truths and myths about this country as it leads Europe in the 21stCentury. Germany is a place of intriguing history that is currently undergoing transformational changes politically, socially and economically. Janet Ruest travelled to Germany as a 2016 Transatlantic Outreach Program (TOP) Fellow sponsored by the Goethe-Institut.  She brings you her recent field experience in photos, stories, and research. The workshop will provide each participant with a teacher resource package that includes ready to use, highly engaging and well supported lessons and activities for K-12 classrooms. These lessons will be ready to use Monday morning!  Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions, discuss alternative lesson ideas and learn about Fellowship opportunities with TOP and the two-week teacher study tour to Germany. Janet Ruest 405  
Global Access to Education through Experiential Learning Two engaging, dynamic presenters introduce their respective non-profit organizations and teaching resources to help educators raise social consciousness in their classrooms. Both cost-free initiatives provide students with an increased understanding and involvement in the world they live in. With Voices into Action – an online, ERAC approved humanities teaching resource, teachers will look at historical and contemporary hatred and discrimination to decipher what can be gleaned from studying them. VIA’s exploration of Aboriginal history, islamophobia, The Holocaust and the Komagata Maru (and much more) support the new BC Curriculum.  The Walking School Bus offers an incredible reading share program (and app) which will connect students in BC with students in third world countries. Participants will leave fully prepared to foster profound learning experiences for their students by bridging the gap between Canada and the global classroom. Jodi Derkson, and Aaron Friedland 409  
Graphic Novels: history with different voices A well-done graphic novel, especially one with a text link indexing important themes and events, could open the door into a deep appreciation of social issues and historical events for all students, not just those who are challenged by complex language or who cannot identify with the narrative voice of a traditional author. Artist-author Michael Kluckner will briefly analyze a few graphic novels, including Australian examples from the Pictorial Social Studies program of the 1950s, the Showa series by Shigeru Mizuki, and three ambitious Canadian history books done in “comic book” format, one of which is his own graphic novel, Toshiko, focusing on the Japanese-Canadian experience during WWII. He will give examples of narrative structure and voice, drawing on the feedback he received from McGill history students who studied the book in 2015. The proposed format is 20-30 minutes of PowerPoint followed by discussion. Michael Kluckner 407  
Hands-on Human Geography Across the Curriculum Understanding how the human race has grown and shaped the world around us comprises academic content and skills in several disciplines and promotes thoughtful citizenship. In this interdisciplinary workshop, teachers will engage in activities to enhance their textbook instruction of trends in human population growth, resource use and distribution, environmental change, urbanization and more. They will also see a model of how a lesson plan can combine content standards for several different subject areas, including life sciences, math, geography, civics, history and economics. The activities presented in this workshop are designed to build understanding of global population change, land use patterns over time and environmental change. Through the activities, students will gain competence in connecting actions to outcomes, graphing and analyzing demographic data, creatively solving problems in cooperative groups and thinking critically about headline issues related to human geography topics. In this inquiry-based workshop, participants will receive a brief introduction to global and national population and resource consumption trends before engaging in a series of hands-on activities: role-playing simulations, concept mapping, cooperative group problem-solving and more. Participants will receive activity scripts, data charts and background reading on a user-friendly CD-ROM. Brenda Ball 413  
Holocaust Education in the Digital Age The workshop will include A brief description of the books and resources available to educators from the Azrieli Foundation’s Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program. This is followed by the introduction of our recently launched interactive digital program, Re:Collection.  Re:Collection allows users to explore the firsthand accounts of Holocaust survivors through video interviews, memoirs excerpts, photos and artifacts. The ability to collect and curate these pieces in interactive timelines and maps allows users to place these stories in the larger historical context. At the same time, Re:Collection provides users with the opportunity to study the lives of these survivors in Canada after the war. Users will also be able to engage with them through themes and concepts that are instantly relatable and speak to the issues and events of the world in which today’s students live.  Participants will have the opportunity for a hands-on experience of Re:Collection and Q and A. Elin Beaumont 404  
Hook, Line, and Thinker – Media in the Classroom How you present your lesson to enhance interest and retention is your choice. I believe that utilizing a mixture of media in the classroom makes learning relevant to teenagers and connects them to the teacher and concepts in a more meaningful way.  These four themes are the cornerstones to all my lessons:  relevant to their world; interesting to the senses; connects the content; and meaningful to their memory(unforgettable).  In addition, the Six Historical Thinking Skills serve as a framework for understanding.

Immigration in Canada and the European Union: unpacking myths with teaching methods Immigration is always a sensitive issue, yet not one to be avoided — understanding the history and politics of immigration is a core requisite for Canadian and global citizenship. The objective of this workshop is to facilitate the teaching of immigration, using a variety of approaches and pedagogies, with a special emphasis on comparing and contrasting Canada and the European Union.  One often-used approach has been to discuss Europe-Canada historical migration patterns. This workshop will examine this approach and consider other ways to teach immigration:  how immigration is framed in the media; a public policy approach; a human rights approach; the political economy of immigration in Canada and Europe; the politics of immigration in the European Union, and the EU as a political project constructed on an idea of “movement”.   Beyond considering different approaches to teaching immigration, this workshop will introduce concrete methods for teaching migration using comparative methods, and via active learning techniques (simulations, problem-based learning, team-based learning, etc.).  I argue that the European Union and European integration offer unique opportunities for teaching immigration issues, and this workshop will demonstrate how. Conrad King 408  
Introducing Law as a Life Skill Legal capability is an increasing necessity as people deal with the complexity of living and working together. Building understanding and skills for managing legal issues will engage students in democratic processes and introduce them to the elements of legal capability. The Justice Education Society of BC offers a suite of interactive classroom lessons and resources, for free, to teachers and students across the province. Learn more about this critical life skill and receive new resources for introducing these ideas. Glenn Dodge 412  
Resources on Asia for Teaching World History In this workshop, participants will be introduced to new resources on 20th century Asian history and contemporary Asia, including Gandhi and Indian independence, genocide in Cambodia (also usable for teaching social justice), and more. The target audience is high school teachers, but anyone is welcome. Presenters will also provide information about the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada’s new curriculum project which includes new teaching materials (created in collaboration with BC social studies teachers) that support the new BC curriculum. Participants will also receive ready-to-use materials based on the workshop topics. Erin Williams, and Scott Harrison 305  
Skookum Stories: Using Heritage Inquiry and Curricular Competencies for Project-Based Learning Having used some form of heritage inquiry with students for 17 years, I can confirm that students become more engaged with Social Studies when some aspect of their identity is on the line. Exploring the boundary between heritage and culture is a safe place for student identity to flourish.  It is also good practice for gathering, interpreting, and representing primary and secondary sources, and perhaps most importantly for students to gain confidence as storytellers, as people that have powerful stories to tell.  This workshop has three parts:  1. Presentation on heritage inquiry and the curricular competencies (historical thinking concepts).  2. Student project examples from Grade 9-12: immigration stories, residential schools, war service, connections to significant events and places.  3. Participant activity to explore connection between heritage, culture, and curriculum. Glen Thielmann 304  
Teaching Guide for using Videogaming and Online tools for Inquiry Learning on Climate Change: Introducing Future Delta 2.0 Teacher Handbook, an Educational Resource for a BC based Videogame Designed for Classroom Learning Future Delta 2.0 is an innovative place-based game where students immerse themselves in a real-life setting, and experience fun while learning how their choices, and their influence on the choices of their community, are connected to climate change. Engagement is an important aspect in learning and communication and videogaming allows for students to tailor their own inquiry learning. The use of digital tools in climate change engagement continues to grow; games have the added advantage of helping students to learn by doing. Best practices for climate change communication, and the development of teaching resources on climate change and/or video games in the classroom will be presented. Elements of a Teacher Handbook to support the use of Future Delta 2.0 as a climate change teaching tool in classrooms will be shown and discussed. This educational resource is aimed at teachers new to game-based learning, and desiring support materials for enhancing their own teaching. Content includes climate change science and strategies for developing awareness and civic engagement in community based sustainability solutions. Stephen Sheppard, and Alicia La Valle 307  
Teaching Inquiry in the New Social Studies Curriculum The inquiry approach suggests that teachers have more success when they frame course content around meaningful questions. Using Heritage Fairs projects as a model, this workshop will offer ideas and activities for teaching historical thinking, writing and developing engaging inquiry questions, and suggestions for how to use archival photographs and documents to begin unraveling the answers to inquiry-rich questions.  Register for this interactive workshop and receive practical teaching tips, lesson plans and handouts to take back to your classroom. Kelsey Beaudry 309  
Teaching the History and Experiences of Working People in BC This workshop introduces the use of newly developed audio visual resources to familiarize students with the work and life experiences of British Columbians during its history from early Aboriginal workers to the present day.  The lesson materials include teaching ideas appropriate for grade nine and ten social studies in the new curriculum and also includes an entire unit on labour history/studies developed for the Social Justice 12 course and Worksafe BC materials. The resources include 30 vignettes (each two to three minutes) on Working People in BC produced by the Knowledge Network as well as numerous other DVDs on labour history. The workshop will feature a hands on experience with accessing the materials through the TeachBC portal. All teaching materials and ideas have been produced by BC teachers as part of the Labour History Project, a joint initiative of the BC Teachers’ Federation and the BC Labour Heritage Centre. Participants will be provided with hard copies of the lessons, available DVDs, including the 30 Knowledge Network vignettes, and information about on-line access to materials. Wayne Axford 219  
The Sustainable Development Goals and simulation based learning – an opportunity to foster global citizenship Engaging simulations have the power to captivate and educate. This workshop is going to explore how we can look to simulations and game based exercises as opportunities to foster thick global citizenship and learn about the United Nations new Sustainable Development Goals. By combining inquiry based learning with simulations and exercises, educators have the capacity to capture the attention and harness the energy of their students.  This workshop will be particularly useful for educators who are looking for new and creative ways to introduce the Sustainable Development Goals to their students. Having been adopted in the Fall of 2015, the UN’s SDG’s are ushering in a new era of both local and global development. This interactive workshop will start with a simulation developed by Insight whereby all participants will be expected to contribute. We will then lead into a discussion behind the pedagogy and implementation of this experiential based approach, giving educators an opportunity to reflect on simulation based outcomes. Sample lessons and resources will be provided at no cost to all workshop attendees.  While particularly geared for socials teachers, this workshop is applicable to anyone intrigued by experiential pedagogy. The workshop will be delivered by a current BC Social Justice teacher and the director of Insight Global Education, a Vancouver based social enterprise that currently works in sub-Saharan Africa, South and Central America and the South Pacific.  The core objectives of this workshop are to:1) Introduce simulation based learning as an opportunity to foster global citizenship,2) Expose educators to new and innovative learning tools that can serve as engaging and captivating opportunities for their students,3) Discuss in detail the differences between thin and thick global citizenship, and the implications that has for the educative process,4) Demonstrate simulations currently available to educators and,5) Create a heightened understanding and awareness of the UN’s new Sustainable Development Goals. Craig Vandermeer, and Danielle Zagar 319  
Truth and Media in Apartheid South Africa: The Soweto Youth Uprising in Fact and Fiction This workshop aims to present the Soweto Youth Uprising through varied media, including award winning documentary material as well as historical YA fiction. The presenters both have a close relationship with South Africa, and will look to work with workshop participants to understand the relevance of the material presented for youth in Canada, and discuss ways in which to navigate the complex issues arising from the subject matter presented.  This workshop is designed to be a learning session for all participants, with the aim that a shared understanding of the subject material will be developed through the audience’s discussion and participation. Workshop Structure: Introduction – Review objectives and introduce presenters, The Soweto Uprising – a documentary viewing of Generations of Resistance (5-8 minutes), context and relevance to 21st century media, with a follow up Q&A with Peter Davis, director.  Brief Roundtable discussion: How would the Soweto Uprising, reporting and context, help youth in Canada navigate controversial concepts e.g. race, diversity, role of youth in the political discourse?  The Soweto Uprising, through fiction brief reading of When Morning Comes by author, Arushi Raina, (5-7 minutes) followed by Q&A.?  Brief Roundtable discussion: How does fiction help youth navigate historical contexts? How do we help students work with the multiple perspectives presented?        Conclusion: feedback and closing remarks.  Objectives:  Understand the potential relevance of the Soweto Uprising for Canadian secondary school education when considering issues of race and diversity, particularly when paralleled with other social and historical movements e.g. LGBTQ movements, the civil rights movement, current social justice movements including Black Lives Matter, etc.  The role of youth in political discourse, considering the benefits, challenges and impacts of youth involvement in social movements.  The specific historical context of apartheid South Africa, and the way in which the apartheid system paralleled discriminatory legislation put forward historically in Canada?  Discuss methodologies for navigating youth through the complex and controversial subject matter that this material presents.  Consider the Soweto Uprising within the larger context of apartheid South Africa, as a potential case study for understanding the importance of multiple perspectives and a critical analysis of media. Arushi Raina, and Peter Davis 321
