Social Justice: Including Animals in the Conversation

Lessons from Social Justice: Including Animals in the Conversation explore social justice issues such as inequality, stereotyping and our values and beliefs in relation to animals. Using animals as a bridge to discuss social justice issues helps ease students into sensitive and personal issues such as racism and stereotyping.

  • Stereotypes and influences on our beliefs
  • Animals in society/media literacy
  • Animal welfare: understanding the terms and discovering the issues
