The Canadian Human Rights Toolkit is a new central online hub for education resources, free to all K-12 teachers across the country. Teachers can search the toolkit for more than 200 teacher-reviewed resources and tools focusing on human rights, including lesson plans, teacher’s guides, manuals, handbooks, study guides, and more, and filter the results by province, language, grade level, and subject area. The toolkit will be an evolving database of Canadian and international resources

This lesson plan, to be used with the program The War of 1812, gives students background information about the diverse perspectives of those groups involved in the war: Americans, British, Canadian Colonists, and First Nations.
