“unlearn. provides EVERY ONE an entry point wherever they are in discovering their own bias, their own prejudice, and creating a school community focused on equity and human rights."
Equity and Inclusion IRT, SCDSB
"We’ve used the unlearn poster packs and apparel at every elementary and secondary school in our district to spark inquiry and raise critical consciousness among educators and learners. The unlearn approach encourages ongoing critical thought and allows participants a way in to adopting an equity lens that works for any stage of readiness and prior understanding. I would strongly recommend unlearn to any educator in a K-12, post-secondary or adult learning context."
Grade 8 Teacher, WRDSB
"unlearn. images promote critical thinking, prompt deep, meaningful, focused discussion, help to build a supportive, accepting community and create a forum for making important thinking visible. With no “wrong answers” there are no barriers to inhibit participation. Because each person has a unique perspective and life experience, unlearn images are universally relevant."
Grade 2 Teacher, Irma Coulson Public School, HDSB
"I use the unlearn posters as rich tools to approach challenging topics. Students gain confidence as critical thinkers as everyone is able to enter the conversation, making comments and connections to the content in the poster designs. I will continue to use unlearn posters to promote critical thinking and encourage my students to see the world through multiple lenses and perspectives."
