Calgary, Alberta is the hotbed of recruitment for extremist groups such as ISIS. Delve into the appeal of such groups, what ideology these groups follow, and how such groups completely reject liberal principles. Through his photojournalist adventures, Gavin has had numerous encounters with ISIS, as well as the groups that are currently fighting against them. The session also looks at the international community’s response to ISIS thus far, and what nations of the world need to do to stem the violence surrounding such groups. Connections will be made with grade eleven and twelve Social Studies curricula, and participants will be able to ask questions, and have access to ready-to-use materials in the classroom on Monday morning.
