A documentary film presented by Lesley Sparks, Hot Docs education and youth programs manager.

Docs For Schools is the education program of the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Film Festival. The programs offer documentary content across a variety of subjects and grade levels. Docs can inform, offering insight and bring new perspectives to students about our world.Teachers can then use docs as an accessible entry point, a catalyst to engage students with content in a deeper manner.

Following the viewing of Learning to Skateboard in a Warzone (If you are a girl), Lesley will discuss the successes and challenges of offering human rights content in today’s classroom.

This event is co-sponsored by the Office of the College Head, McLaughlin College, and Human Rights Watch (HRW).
