Canadian teachers are using creative ways to introduce the idea of White Privilege in the classroom. Some are looking to the work of WCW's Peggy McIntosh, whose 1980s writings on privilege led to more widespread use of the term White Privilege, to develop their lessons. The topic can be controversial, and while some teachers are uncomfortable with leading these discussions, others feel it is important to address this in the classroom.
