Experience the Alberta Council for Global Cooperation’s (ACGC) newest workshop, Beyond a Single Story. Created for grades 7-12, this activity prompts learners to explore the ways that intersecting identities can affect a person’s reality and quality of life. By considering the diverse viewpoints within a specific community, students will gain an understanding of the complexities of analyzing a community’s challenges and strengths. Each community case study was created in partnership with an Alberta-based international development organization, using their many years of experience working in solidarity with their partner communities. Through the case studies, students will explore challenges relating to unsafe water, gender inequality, avoidable blindness, poverty, HIV prevention, or access to education. They will analyze these challenges while considering the perspectives of various community members whose identities affect their lived experiences distinctly. ACGC will facilitate the workshop with participants, then open up a discussion on how to promote empathy-building and global citizenship in the classroom and how to approach topics such as intersectionality and diverse lived experiences.
