Rights Bites podcasts and lesson plans
Are you a LINC or ESL instructor? Rights Bites, CLEO’s podcast series for newcomers, draws attention to some common legal problems that affect newcomers in their rental housing or at work, and gives information about legal rights.
Each episode combines interviews with lawyers, community workers, and newcomers who have had experience with either an employment law or housing law problem.
You can share the audio content with your students directly, or use the companion lesson plans that go with each episode to help guide students through the podcasts. You’ll find links to the companion lesson plans and Canadian Learning Benchmark (CLB) assessment tools at the bottom of this page.
